The word “Bail” means to release a person from the custody of police or jail authority and handover him to his surities who undertake to produce him in court whenever required to do so. When the accused is under the custody of the police or jail authority in connection with a case, the accused has to submit bail application before the Magistrate Court. If Magistrate Court rejects the bail aoolication the accused has to move before the Court of Sessions for getting bail. There are two types of offences. One is bailable and another is non bailable. Section 496 of CrPC deals with bailable offence and section 497 of CrPC deals with non bailable offence. Under section 496 of the Code of Criminal Procedure,1898 – a person arrested on the allegation of a bailable offence shall be released on bail if an application for bail is made before the court. Section 497 of the same Code provides that when any person is arrested for non bailable offences, normally the court deny to release him on bail. But there are some grounds for which the court can grant bail in non bailable offences. These are:
- If the accused is severe sick;
- If the accused is old in age;
- If the accused is female;
- If the accused is minor in age.
