Anticipatory Bail cannot be decided on the sole ground of custodial interrogation: P&H HC

The Punjab & Haryana High Court (P&H HC) rejected an anticipatory bail application filed by an Accused charged with falsely claiming proximity with judges and taking money on that pretext to influence a case. The P&H HC noted that, there can be many cases wherein custodial interrogation may not be required; however, the prima facie case against the Accused cannot be ignored on that ground alone to grant him anticipatory bail.
