- Neeru Yadav Vs State of UP S.L.P. (Crl.) No. 8469 of 2014
The accused was granted bail by the Allahabad high court (Mitthan Yadav Vs State of UP). In an appeal against the order of the high court, a two-judge bench of the Supreme Court surveyed the precedent on the principles that guide the grant of bail. Justice Dipak Misra held in Neeru Yadav Vs State of UP thus:
“If in a case, the relevant factors which should have been taken into consideration while dealing with the application for bail have not been taken note of, or bail is founded on irrelevant considerations, indisputably the superior court can set aside the order of such a grant of bail.”
- Mahipal Vs Rajesh Kumar alias Polia SLP (Crl.) No. 6339 of 2019
The Supreme Court outlined the standards governing the setting aside of bail by this court in the following terms:
“Where a court considering an application for bail fails to consider relevant factors, an appellate court may justifiably set aside the order granting bail. An appellate court is thus required to consider whether the order granting bail suffers from a non-application of mind or is not borne out from a prima facie view of the evidence on record.”
