High Court may recall non-bailable warrants u/s 482 CrPC: Madras HC


In a recent judgement rendered by Justice MS Ramesh, the Madras High Court has clarified that its inherent powers under Section 482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure includes the power to quash or recall non-bailable warrants.

This power would be irrespective of the existence of an alternate remedy under Section 70(2), which empowers cancellation of the warrant by the court that had issued the warrant. Senior Advocate NR Elango assisted in the case as Amicus Curiae.
