    If the high court has passed an order in a bail petition, within how many days can one approach the Supreme Court against such order of the High Court? How much is the period of limitation, if any?

    You will have to file a Special Leave Petition (SLP) against the order of the High Court in a bail matter.

    The period of limitation for filing such SLP is 3 months from the date of order of the High Court. But, in appropriate cases, the Supreme Court has the power to condone the delay, for which you can file an application for condonation of delay along with the SLP, explaining the reasons for delay.
