In the case of Lavesh vs. State (NCT of Delhi), the Supreme Court has ruled that no court should grant anticipatory bail to a person who had been declared an absconder either during the investigation or during the trial. It held that normally, when the accused is 'absconding' and declared as 'proclaimed offender', there is no question of granting anticipatory bail. When a person against whom a warrant has been issued and is absconding or concealing himself in order to avoid execution of warrant and is declared as a proclaimed offender in terms of Section 82 of the Criminal Procedure Code, is not entitled to the relief of anticipatory bail.
