This book deals with the law of bail, bonds, arrest and custody. Arrest and custody, as noted above, relate to deprivation of personal liberty of an individual. On the other hand, bail and bonds, relate to restoration of personal liberty to such individual, even if such restoration be only as a temporary measure. This book essentially deals only with the aforesaid limited aspect of personal liberty, viz, bail, bonds, arrest and custody, as the title of the book makes it amply clear. The book covers the relevant provisions existing in the Code of Criminal Procedure, as also in various other enactments dealing with criminal laws, such as NDPS Act, TADA Act, POTA, MCOCA, SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, Juvenile laws, other Central and State Acts of criminal nature, etc. Provisions of some important dead laws, such as TADA Act, not withstanding their repeal, have also been incorporated in the book as many cases under such laws continue to survive; moreover, such laws dealt with some very important bail provisions; there is no gainsaying the fact that such bail provisions keep getting repeated in different laws in one form or another. The book covers the detailed case law on the subject from the Supreme Court and various High Courts.
