No default bail to accused merely because MCOCA invoked after filing of chargesheet: Bombay High Court

The Court held that once the chargesheet for IPC offences is filed within time as per Section 167 CrPC, no right to default bail subsists only because MCOCA offences were invoked after the chargesheet was filed.

The Bombay High Court recently held that once a chargesheet is filed within the time period prescribed under Section 167(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), the right to claim default bail would not survive merely because additional offences under special acts are invoked after the filing of the chargesheet [Amit Bhogale v. State of Maharashtra and connected matter].
