The procedure for withdrawal and dismissal is applicable on the Sessions Court and the High Court alike.
Dismissed as withdrawn: The accused usually approach the Sessions Court for the relief of Anticipatory Bail and the application can be withdrawn at any stage before concluding the final arguments. If the anticipatory bail application is withdrawn, it can be refiled before the same court after explaining the change of circumstances, and that application can be argued on merits. But, if an application is withdrawn, it cannot be filed before the appellate forum.
Dismissed on merits: If the application is dismissed on merits, it can only be filed before the appellate forum.
