[Statutory Bail] Bail Court Has No Jurisdiction To Go Into Merits Of The Case U/S 167(2) CrPC

Case: Kannan v. State rep. by the Deputy Superintendent of Police and others

Coram: Justice Murali Shankar

Case No.: Crl. A (MD) No. 461 of 2022

Court Observation: This Court is at loss to understand that the Sessions Judge, who is having 19 years of experience in judicial service, has over looked the legal provisions and the legal dictum laid down by the Hon’ble Apex Court and the way he played with the personal liberty of the appellant/accused, completely oblivious of a basic provision, which every Officer dealing in criminal cases comes across day in and day out. Hence, the Registry is directed to call for an explanation from the concerned Officer in this regard.
