Hello Sir,

If the accused not attend the Court as per the directions of the Court, then the court will NBWs, in such an event in general party approach the Advocate to file recall petition before the Magistrates Court and the Court in general recall the warrants. Every such warrant shall remain in force until it is cancelled by the Court which issued it, or until it is executed.
