If the accused is under custody, period is 90 days, other wise it would be governed by 468 Cr.P.C.

If person is in custody 90 days only purpose of bail . If chage sheet is not filled in that period person in custody has right of bail, otherwise for offence punishable more than 3 years has no limit.

law says charge sheet should be file within 90 days, but is not mandatary.

Since the sections involved have imprisonment of 7 years , section 167[2][a][ ii], the investigation has to be completed for bail purposes within 60 days and not 90 days. I differ on this point with my learned friends
