Seekin help from esteemed lawyer friends. My friend got arrested under sec 376 and 420 and remanded to judicial custody. Seeking advice/help to get him out on bail. Brief incident as follows:
My friend was staying with a girl in Hydbd. The girl was already married and left her in-laws before coming and staying with my friend. She had previously filed a dowry case against his inlaws. While they(fren+girl) were staying together the girl applied for a divorce against her formal husband . They (fren+girl) started staying togther for almost 2 years . Between this time the girl got pregrant by my fren and she revealed that only after 6 months. My fren got shocked and some differences of opinions followed. My fren in all disgust left his place and came to his native for a break. During this time the girl went and filed a police complaint. The police booked him for 376 and 420 and arrested. Two bail petitions got rejected and we are completly lost hyderabd not being known to us. One lawyers took huge sum of money and cheated us saying he will get the bail within a week. We are going pillar to post and not knowing local language has been a setback. Can anyone guide us how to move forward and if possible get him out on bail atleast?
We spoke to another lawyer and he said give money to PP and police and then only bail is possible. Is it really true? I think he is again trying to fuel money out taking advantage of us..is there anyone honest in hydbd or elsewhere to help us out? Thanks in advance
