Dataram Singh v. State of Uttar Pradesh - Supreme Court Important Judgment

 Dataram Singh v. State of Uttar Pradesh - Supreme Court Important Judgment 2018 - 


On 6th February, 2018, in the case of Dataram Singh v. State of Uttar Pradesh & Anr. [Criminal Appeal No. 227 of 2018], it was held that “a humane attitude is required to be adopted by a judge, while dealing with an application for remanding a suspect or an accused person to police custody or judicial custody.”


However, the Supreme Court clarified that it “should not be understood to mean that bail should be granted in every case. The grant or refusal of bail is entirely within the discretion of the judge hearing the matter and though that discretion is unfettered, it must be exercised judiciously and in a humane manner and compassionately. Also, conditions for the grant of bail ought not to be so strict as to be incapable of compliance, thereby making the grant of bail illusory.”
