Around 3500 undertrials directed to surrender on expiry of interim bail by Delhi HC


New Delhi, Mar 6 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today directed all 3499 Undertrial Prisoners (UTPs), who were granted interim bails under the various criteria laid down by the High Powered Committee, to surrender upon the expiry of their interim bail.

A division bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Talwant Singh, while refusing to extend the said interim orders, held, “All 3499 UTPs granted interim bails under the various criteria laid down by the High Powered Committee, who have not obtained regular bails from their Court concerned, or any other superior court to its court concerned, shall surrender before the Jail Superintendent(s) upon the expiry of the period of their interim bail commencing from March 7, 2021.

However, the court did not fix a specific date for the surrender of all such persons, as they have been granted bail on different criteria. 

“As the 3499 under trial prisoners were admitted to interim bails on different dates, accordingly, the period of their interim bails will expire with efflux of time on different dates. Therefore, there is no requirement to fix any specific date for their surrender,” said the court.

The bench further said that the Director General (Prisons) shall ensure that this order is conveyed to all the UTPs by telephone, as well as through all other available modes.
