Criminal Procedure Code, 1973 S. 122(1)(b) - Section 122(1)(b) applies only in cases where the bond has been executed for keeping/maintaining peace and not to any other type of bond executed by a person, the impugned orders cannot sustain - In the light of the statute providing for no power under Section 122 Cr.P.C. for ordering detention of a person, who violates the bond conditions for good behaviour, the detention order of the petitioner is without any authority of law - The detention of the petitioner is, therefore, declared illegal and in gross violation of the fundamental right enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution of India - As the detention of the petitioner has been found to be illegal and being in violation of Article 21 of the Constitution of India and there are no disputed questions of fact, the petitioner is held entitled to compensation for infringement/violation of his fundamental right of life and liberty - Held entitled to compensation of Rs.5 lakhs.  (179) PLR
