    In UAE as per the article 401 of UAE Penal Code which reads: “Detention or a fine shall be imposed upon anyone who, in bad faith, gives a draft (cheque) without a sufficient and drawable balance . The issuer is kept inside jail until he pays Cheque money and lawyer fee. Same way India has to make a rule if the lawyer is applying for bail on behalf of culprit than they have to keep the lawyer inside jail until they catches the culprit if he runs away.
