The Supreme Court of India has recently observed that imposition of onerous conditions for grant of bail is tantamount to denial of bail. (Mithun Chatterjee v. State of Odisha)

The Court said, “We are of the considered view that imposition of onerous conditions for grant of bail tantamount to denial of bail”.

The Court remarked, “We are of the considered view that imposition of onerous conditions for grant of bail tantamount to denial of bail.

Therefore, we set aside the order of the High Court relating to the condition imposed by the High Court directing the petitioner to provide cash security of Rs.20 lakhs and to furnish security of

immovable property for Rs.20 lakhs. The special leave petition is, accordingly, disposed of. Pending application(s), if any, shall stand disposed of.”
