Nature of grievance

Where a person has, during the period of investigation, inquiry or trial under this Code of an offence under any law (not being an offence for which the punishment of death has been specified as one of the punishments under that law) undergone detention for a period, extending up to one-half of the maximum period of imprisonment specified for that offence under that law, the said person may move a Bail Application, through Jail or through the Advocate, praying that he shall be released by the Court on his personal bond with or without sureties (Section 436A)
