The first worry of every person arrested and detained on allegation of commission of crime is how to secure bail and regain freedom and personal liberty as quickly as possible. On this issue, the rich is as worried as the poor.
The right to bail is an offshoot of at least three fundamental rights namely, the right to personal liberty, right to freedom of movement and right to presumption of innocence. The grant of bail therefore is an exercise in preservation of named fundamental rights.
The book is tailor-made to suit the interest of lawyers for both the defence and prosecution. The courts will also find its contents greatly beneficial particularly the recurring themes carefully discussed side by side with decided authorities.
