I got this somewhere on the web.
impounding a “passport” is provided for in Section 1 0(3) of the Passports Act. The Passports Act is a special law while the Cr.P .C. is a general law. It is well settled that the special law prevails over the general law. Impounding of a passport cannot be done by the Court under Section 104 Cr. P.C. though it can impound any other document or thing. My appeal in High court was admitted and today the order has been passed to return passport, with some “conditions”. I will be getting the copy of the order on Monday. I was told by my lawyer that the surety amount is Rs 5 lakhs, which I think it’s ridiculous. Anyway, now I can go back to US and start the judicial proceedings for my child’s custody.
