Section 362 Cr.P.C. bar does not apply in bail matters: SC

The Supreme Court, while dealing with the issue of whether bar on modification of judgment & final order as given under Section 362 Cr.P.C. would apply to order refusing bail, has held that any change in circumstances under which bail plea was dismissed confers a right to file a fresh application which empowers the concerned court to consider bail plea afresh. Therefore, prohibition on modification under Section 362 Cr.P.C. would not apply to a judgment or final order rejecting bail.
