This Cr.P.C. According to the amendment bill, those who rape women and sexually abuse girls will not get anticipatory bail. Now it will be passed in the Legislative Council.

In fact, the Code of Criminal Procedure (Uttar Pradesh Amendment) Bill 2022 was introduced in the UP Legislative Assembly on Thursday, which was later passed. The Bill proposes to amend Section 438 of the CrPC, 1973 in relation to the State. This section defines the powers of the High Court or Sessions Court to grant anticipatory bail.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Kumar Khanna told the House that the non-availability of anticipatory bail in sexual offenses against girls and women will reduce the chances of the accused destroying evidence.
