Last updated on Apr 8, 2022

Some cases where you can be granted bail when charged with a non-bailable offence are:

  • If it appears to the officer or the court at any stage of the inquiry or trial that the accused has not committed the non-bailable offence, then the accused can be granted bail. 
  • If the trial of a person accused with non bailable offence takes more than 60 days, and the person has been in jail all this while, then the court can release him and grant him bail.
