Station bail

There is a system of granting bail by the police. It is called ‘Station bail’. In a bailable offence under section 436 Cr.P.C., the police is bound to release the accused on bail. In such circumstances, police can obtain bail bond from the accused. Police cannot demand any property document from him. A station bail cannot be cancelled by the police. Cancellation of bail is the exclusive power of the Court.
