Hello Respected Lawyers, I have a query with my Bail Order in reference to the meaning of P.R.Bond, Sureties & Provisional Cash Bail. My queries are as below:
1. "Applicant be released on bail in case registered with EOW, on furnishing P.R. Bond of Rs. 1 lakh with one or more sureties in the like amount." My query here is, what does a P.R. Bond stand for? And what does "WITH" One or more Sureties in LIKE AMOUNT mean? I am not able to understand am I supposed to arrange sureties of 1 Lakh each, means multiple 1 lakhs or only ONE single surety of 1 lakh? (where it says ONE or MORE).
2. Can my Wife stand as SURETY? If yes, does she also has to pay 1 Lakh in cash or property worth 1 lakh etc. OR only her documents would be enough? She is salaried with a private company on contract basis from long term. She has her Salary Slips, Form 16/ITR, Pancard, Aadhar Card, Ration Card.
3. "The applicant is permitted to furnish provisional cash bail of Rs. 1 lakh for a period of three months. Registrar(S) is directed to accept the cash surety ATH." My query here is, that I was granted the above and my wife and paid the amount to the court and I was released on Bail. Now, what does PROVISIONAL CASH BAIL mean here? Does it mean that once I furnish a Single Surety of 1 lakh as mentioned in above Point 1, will the Provisional Cash Bail amount be refunded back?
Bail Order was passed on 22-01-2021 & I was released on 28-01-2021 from Judicial Custody. 21-04-2021 my 3 month period will end. Hence kindly help me in understanding the above points as how should I proceed further.
I am released on a Conditional Bail with my undertaking given to the court as, I will deposit the said disputed case amount in a period of 3 years from date of release.
My sections are as below:
EOW for the offences punishable u/secs. 406, 419 & 420 of IPC and Secs. 3 & 4 of MPID Act.
I was behind bars from July 2020-January 2021. I had appointed a lawyer but obviously for my bail process but he didnt do the groundwork on the case properly and my bail application on merit basis was rejected earlier and I had to forcefully go in for this Conditional Bail option.
Kindly provide me with proper guidance and correct advice on the above mentioned WORDINGS/CLAUSES of the bail order and then would definitely like to engage a good MPID Lawyer for my case.
I am located at Mumbai.
Thanks in advance to all the peers in this forum.
P.S. I am attaching a part of the bail order within for perusal and better understanding of the context.
Thanks and Regards
