Pls help experts. bailable warrants for complainant.

FIR was registered against my husband sec 498, 406, challan presented charges framed. i got summons for evidence. i went, put signatures of attendence in court. they called me on next date that too in afternoon after lunch they (pp-govt advocate) say that my evidence is long time consuming so will be taken in afterrnoon. i said ok and came back.  now today policeman came home and said bailable warrants for me. i was not at home. he left his phone no.  when i called him, he said, i will come in evening and cannot talk on phone. i want to ask - if he comes, can i go in front of him to receive summons? can he arrest me? 5000 mentioned on warrants. so do i need to give any application for cancel warents? do i need to fill surity bond? do i need to get bail? i am complainant, not criminal.  pls pls guide.

First of all dont worry, it is only a bailable warrant. Even if u r arrested u have to be immediately relesed on giving surety. But dont wait for that. Immediately file a petition in the concerned court for recalling the warrant.

the case is on 26.10.16. if i go to court that day, will judge arrest me? another witness in same case has got same warrants sir.

Move in the court tommorrow morning file an application for cancellation of warrant. Court will cancell warrant tomorrow itself.

but sachin sir, if i go, wont it be risky. cant they arrest me . pls answer i am too tensed.

Sachin (N.A)     13 October 2016

It is better to file an application before date of hearing U/S 70 (2) of CrPC for Cancellation of warrant 

Even if you don't do it.Court cannot arrest you on date of hearing because if the accused has appeared before the court then his bailable warrants stand cancelled and no specific order is required to be passed by concerned court. The warrants are meant for securing the presence of the accused.

Sachin (N.A)     13 October 2016

You can do it in person or hire a lawyer for this. as your presence is not mandatory for cancellation of warrant.


Don't get tensed.yes

sir, i am complainant not accused, thats why i am more confused.


Sachin (N.A)     13 October 2016

But procedure for cancellation of warrent remains same.  As i said before if you are scared hire a lawyer for this, your presence is not mandatory.


Don't worry!!
