Section 119 CrPC: Commencement of Period for Security Requirement

This section deals with the commencement of the period for the requirement of security from a person accused of an offence. It clarifies when the time period for providing security starts.

Explanation:

When an order for security is issued, the time for fulfilling that requirement starts from the time:

  • The order is served on the person, or
  • If the order is not served but the person has actual knowledge of it, from the time the person becomes aware of the order.

However, if the order is not served but the person learns about it on 5th January, the time period for providing security begins from 5th January.
