Provision for cancellation of bail in India is contained in Section 439(2). It contemplates that the Court of Session or the High Court can cancel the bail granted to an accused. The said section is reproduced hereunder for ready reference: “439(2) A High Court or Court of Sessions may direct that any person who has been released on bail under this Chapter be arrested and commit him to custody.”
