Legal Question in Criminal Law in India

Res. sir,

3 criminal complaints are pending against one accused. In one case , accused jumped the bail and didnot appeared on the date of judgement.

Accused appeared in other two complaint cases fixed on different date . On such date, magistrate took him in judicial custody in the case in which accused jumped the bail and didnot appeared on date of judgement.

My question is:- whether magistrate has power to arrest the accused suo motto without any intimation by compalinant?

Pls its urgent.

Yes. The magistrate's action is not wrong. You may apply for bail.

Once the bail is jumped, it becomes a matter between the accused and the court. The complainant has no locus to oppose or support such move.
