The main difference between the two is that regular bail is granted after a person has been arrested and charged, while anticipatory bail is granted before an arrest.
Anticipatory bail is often sought by individuals who fear that they may be arrested in the future, typically in cases where they believe that false charges may be leveled against them. This type of bail allows the individual to seek legal protection from arrest, which can be especially important if they feel that their detention could be politically motivated or based on false allegations.
On the other hand, regular bail is granted after an arrest has been made and the individual has been charged with a crime. This type of bail allows the individual to be released from jail while awaiting trial, so they can continue to work and support their family.
In both cases, the bail amount is set by the court and can vary depending on the severity of the charges and the individual’s criminal history. It’s important to note that both types of bail require the individual to show up for all court appearances and follow any other conditions set by the court or risk having their bail revoked and being sent back to jail.
