Finding of the case :- PHHC has held that the bail granted to a person does not come to an end on account of delay in submitting surety.

The court said, observing the view of trial court is against the mandate of proviso to section-167(2) of the crpc as exponded by SC in various judgments. Bench said that the manner in which trial court has ignored the judgment of apex court is not appreciable.

Conclusion :- A judgment passed by the hon’ble SC is binding on all courts in the country under article- 141 of the constitution. No doubt, the ratio decidendi (the rationale for the decision) laid down in the judgment is binding and not obitur dicta (not remarks made by judge that do not affect the outcome of the case).
