Section 107 is an effective means of preventing breach of peace or disturbance of public tranquility in connection with religious processions, festivals, fairs, elections, political movements or other disputes between groups/factions that may probably occasion a breach of peace or disturbance of public tranquillity. It may require such person to show cause as to why he should not be ordered to execute a bond, with or without sureties, for keeping peace and good behavior for a period not exceeding one year.

If any person or group commits an act that results in disturbing the peace and public tranquillity in the area, he/they can be bound over under Section 107 CrPC by directing them to execute bonds to keep the peace in the area.
