What do A1 and 3, NBW and HBC stand for?


With reference to the issue stated above by you, i would like to draw to your attention that A1-3 stands for accused.

The term “accused” has not been specifically defined in the code but what we generally understand is that the accused means the person charged with an infringement of the law for which he is liable and if convicted then to be punished.

In other words, a person who is charged with the commission of offence.1-3 are the accused who are absent.

NBW stands for Non-bailable Warrant. A non-bailable offence is one in which the grant of Bail is not a matter of right. Here the Accused will have to apply to the court, and it will be the discretion of the court to grant Bail or not.

The court may generally refuse the Bail, if: ÒBail BondÓ has not been duly executed, or if the offence committed is one, which imposes punishment of death or Life imprisonment, such as ÒMurder Ó or ÒRapeÓ or the accused has attempted to abscond, and his credentials are doubtful.

Non-bailable warrant ixs nothing but the warrant of arrest and a person can be sent jail after the issuance of such warrant. Issuance of such warrant is much required when the order of conviction is passed and the accused is not in the custody.

HBC stands for Hearing Before Charge.

It is a rirtual where you will be asked Òwhether you plead Guilty of the charges?Ó Every one will say no and the it will be posted for Framing of Charges. Now it is the chance for the accused to file discharge petition(before charges are framed).
