Defending a Bail Petition
Whenever a Bail Petition is filed by accused, two parties have right to defend it. One is the complainant and the other is the prosecution department. Both these parties are covered under the umbrella of State.
Notices are served to the State once bail petition is filed. Generally in practice the State is lazy in defending bail petitions. The reason is that there is deficiency of prosecutors in all over Pakistan. Where there are prosecutors available, they mostly have lack of interest in doing the hard work for defending bail petitions in which they don't have any specific interests.
A complainant has the right and interest to defend bail petition generally. He/she can engage counsel and represent his version in the court as required.
