An order was given to the Registrar of Vigilance by the High Court of Rajasthan to bring action against a judge who had summoned accused petitioners in a case, even though they were already given anticipatory bail by the High Court.
Moreover, FIRs were registered under different categories, including cheating, against Nanuram Saini and Vinod Kumar. In this case, in 2003, the accused was granted protective bail by the high court. The judge released an arrest warrant against both in September, acknowledging this year’s case in question.
After the arrest warrant was filed, an appeal was lodged before the judge by the petitioner’s lawyers. On the other hand, it said the high court granted the accused anticipatory bail. In compliance with Article 70(2) of the CrPC, the petition demanded that the judge turn this arrest warrant into a bailable warrant.
Moreover, the court quashed the Order of 3 September 2020, in light of the law established by the Supreme Court, stating that the petitioners are considered as enforceable of all benefits provided under this anticipatory bail, and they are to be brought before the tribunal without any final bail bonds being submitted.”
