Getting anticipatory bail if I was absent in first hearing of DV case

Non bailable warrants under section 489A have been issued against me as I did not appear in court as I was abroad. Do I have any chance of getting anticipatory bail from high court so that I can go back to India and fight the case without the fear of being arrested? Please advice Thankyou

Hi, no anticipatory bail in your case as because now the warrant has been issued against you. But you can apply for regular bail From the high court. Only you have to prove that you were not here in India.
