News : Supreme Court Bars Accused from Seeking Default Bail Only on the Ground of Charge Sheet Filed Without Sanction.

  • The Supreme Court has made a decision that an accused person cannot get automatic bail just because a chargesheet is filed without permission from a valid authority.
  • The decision was made by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice JB Pardiwala.
  • They looked at Section 167 of CrPC, which allows an accused person to get bail if an investigation is not finished within a set time.
  • However, the bench did not agree with an argument that said permission from a valid authority was needed for the chargesheet to be valid under Section 167. They decided that this was a matter for the prosecution, not the investigation.
  • The court looked at four important questions and decided that a chargesheet filed without permission from a valid authority could still be valid if it was filed within a reasonable time frame.
  • They also said that previous court decisions that allowed incomplete chargesheets could not be used as a defense in this case.
