1. With regard to anticipatory bail, the Supreme Court decided in Prashant Singh Rajput vs. State of MP {MANU/SCOR/23922/2021} that it may be revoked when the trial court fails to consider relevant factors, such as the nature and gravity of the crime. The court must be satisfied that the proper principles for granting bail have been followed.


2. In Sanatan Pandey vs the State of UP {LL 2021 SC 568}, the Supreme Court ruled that the court cannot intervene to save or assist an accused who refuses to cooperate with the investigating agency and flees in a case that is not bailable, as well as when a proclamation has been made against him.


3. Following the Supreme Court's displeasure with the investigation conducted by the UP police in the Lakhimpur Kheri case, the main accused Ajay Mishra Teni's son has been taken to police detention for three days. When it comes to cases under section 302 of the IPC, the CJI has stated to treat him the same as everyone else.


4. Sedition is a crime under the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which is why Justice Rohinton Nariman urged the Supreme Court to invalidate that section as well as the relevant parts of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). He said that the sedition legislation was "created by a colonial master to restrict free expression in a colony" and is still being abused. Free speech is stifled as a result. It's unlikely that individuals would be able to talk freely if they were being arrested under these rules, which have harsh penalties and no provision for anticipatory bail. A basic right of everyone is freedom of expression, and this includes the ability to express one's views critically.
