Sureties of the Peace
Estreat of bond
191. Estreat of bond---(1) Any person who has obtained an order
requiring any other person to enter into a bond for keeping the peace
may apply to a Court presided over by a [District Court Judge] for an
order for estreat of the bond on the ground that that other person has
failed to keep the condition of the bond.
(2) On the filing of the application the Registrar shall fix a time
and place for the hearing of the application, and shall, not less than 7
days before the time fixed, cause to be served on every person bound by
the bond a notice of the time and place so fixed.
(3) If on the hearing of any application made under this section it is
proved to the satisfaction of the Court that the condition of the bond
has not been kept, the Court may make an order in the prescribed form to
estreat the bond to such an amount as it thinks fit as to any person
bound thereby on whom notice is proved to have been served in accordance
with this section. Any penalty payable in accordance with this
subsection shall be recoverable as if it were a fine.
