Manish Jain v. Haryana State Pollution Board, AIR 2020 SC 4288

Topic: Bail and Personal Liberty

Court: Supreme Court of India

Issue: Whether the accused released on regular bail can apply for the anticipatory bail as his bail was cancelled due to non-appearance?

Held: A person released on bail is already in the constructive custody of law. If the law requires him to come back to custody for specified reasons, an application for anticipatory bail apprehending arrest will not lie. There cannot be an apprehension of arrest by a person already in the constructive custody of the law.See Full Judgement
