Can I apply for anticipatory bail before filing an FIR?
In my native place, we fight with my opposite party. At the time we hit that person( he is old man). Injury is little only but opposite party given compliance for my self and my dad. I'm after 15 day going to Dubai. So my opposite party plan to put FIR on Friday evening. Now I am plan to get anticipatory bail. It's possible or not. Kindly give solution for above matter.

If there is any apprehension regarding the arrest then you may file an anticipatory bail petition u/s 438 of Cr.P.C. before the session court or High Court, there is no mandatory provision that the FIR should be registered then only the AB can file, without registering any FIR you can apply for AB if there is any apprehension of arrest.
