Filing of chargesheet not a ground to cancel default bail: Reiterates SC

Relying on its earlier judgment passed in Bashir vs State of Haryana [(1997) 4 SCC 410], the Supreme Court in the case of Kamlesh Chaudhary vs State of Rajasthan has held that filing of charge sheet by itself cannot be a ground for cancellation of bail. Bail granted under Section 167 Cr.P.C. can be cancelled on other grounds available in law to the prosecution.
