Section 420 r/w 120B of the IPC are non bailable offences. You would have to move a bail application forthwith before the Metropolitan Magistrate, Patiala House who would either take cognizance or commit it. Incase the Magistrate rejects your application, immediately move a bail application before the Sessions Court, Patiala House.

These offences are non bailable offences. If the Magistrate Court has rejected the bail then you can either wait for the filing of the charge sheet to file the bail application once again or move the Session Court for bail under Section 439 of the CrPC.

The said crime amounts to non bailable offence and the concerned court has the power to enlarge you on bail. As per sections , your case is tried by MM and if he dismissed your bail application you can move to the session court in Patiala house. Revert me if you have any other query. Best of luck.

Section 420 is a non-bailable offence but if you have some good grounds in your defense, you will surely get the bail. However in reply to your query, if bail is rejected by the M.M then what, first you should understand that if M.M is not satisfied to give you bail then withdraw the application and you can again file the same later on fresh grounds. And if the application is dismissed then you will have option to go in appeal to the session court.

Section 420 IPC is non-bailable. If any of the offence alleged is non-bailable then it doesn't matter whether the other offence is bailable or not.
Patiala house has two types of criminal courts - Magistrate and Sessions. Secondly, if bail application has been rejected by the magistrate, ordinarily a fresh bail application ought to be filed before the court of sessions. However if there is a change in circumstance after the rejection by magistrate, one can approach the Same court again. If bail is rejected by court of sessions then one has to approach high court.
