The Allahabad High Court has directed the government advocate to seek the necessary information within two days of receiving the anticipatory bail application notice to his office so that the hearing of the application can be expedited.
This order has been given by Justice Siddharth on the anticipatory bail application of Govind Mishra alias Chhotu of Phulpur, Varanasi. Mishra had been arrested in a case of theft under Section 379, 411, 419, 420, 467, 468 IPC, Police Station- Phoolpur, District- Varanasi.
The court has said that if the information is not given within two days, the court will hear on the basis of the facts available. The court has said that it is not in the interest of speedy justice to grant final advance bail after interim advance bail. The court has approved the interim anticipatory bail of the petitioner.
The court has said that there is a provision in the High Court rules to give notice to the government advocate’s office two days before the filing of the bail application. But there is no such provision for anticipatory bail application.
Advocates are filing applications by giving notice. But due to lack of information in GA office, interim advance bail has to be given by giving time.
