Bail is a security either in cash or by an undertaking given to the Court or to the Police to ensure that the person released on bail (the accused) returns to the Court or to the Police station as and when required to do so. The person furnishing such a security is known as a bailor or a surety. When a person agrees to be a bailor or a surety, he is said to be “standing bail”. Depending on the amount, the Court or the Police officer may allow more than one bailor or surety for the person bailed.
