Hi,please take note of the followings sections:

Section 167; Code of Criminal Procedure

Section 57; Code of Criminal Procedure

Thus, the police cannot detain an accused without a warrant beyond 24 hours of arrest (upon completion of which the accused is to be forwarded to the judicial magistrate,) unless they deem it necessary for the accused to stay in custody for more than 24 hours for the continuing of investigation, for which again, they would need authorization by the magistrate.
