With an ever-increasing rate of crimes coupled with advancements in science and technology, criminal litigation has only experienced augmentation. Such an overwhelming increase in the crime rate tends to jeopardize the delivery of justice in any state which now demands us to draw our focus towards itself.

Crimes have opened gates to mal-practices such as corruption and bribery, especially in police stations, and have sown seeds of doubt in the citizens towards the prevalent justice mechanism in India. Now at this point in time, the officers of the court, such as the criminal lawyers come to play.

The law provides a path to justice that needs to be held with the hand of a good lawyer to cross with. People with honest intentions either find themselves muddled in a situation with no-fault of theirs or become innocent victims of the crimes themselves. Either way, it is a criminal lawyer drawn by wit and honesty, who can save the day. Connect with Karan S. Thukral, Advocate, the best criminal lawyer in Delhi to know more about your rights.

Getting a bail can be a tedious task when it comes to offenses such as Forgery, Murder, Rape, Dowry Death, kidnapping, criminal breach of trust, causing grievous hurt, attempt to murder, or half murder.

In case you apprehend an arrest for the cases cited above, immediately contact a good criminal lawyer, and apply for anticipatory bail. In cases where anticipatory bail can’t be granted, ask your criminal lawyer to seek interim protection. This shall help you seek bail in the future.
