A Layman can challenge it by filing a writ.
B.B.R.Goud. (Expert) 10 September 2010
yes. any one can challenge unlawful detention under IPC or writ under Art 32 or Art 226.

I agree with experts

under art. 226/227 you may go to high court.
Uma parameswaran (Expert) 11 September 2010
If any person is arrested against the conditions mentioned in the section, then that person can challenge it .
s.subramanian (Expert) 11 September 2010
The illegal custody or detention can be always challenged by filing a writ of habeas corpus since it infringes your fundamental right to life and personal liberty under Arts.20 to 22 of Constitution of India.

If the power to arrest is malafidely used by the police u/s 41 crpc a criminal case u/s 330,342,323 ipc may be regsitered against the police officer through application in court U/s 156(3)crpc.Usually CP/DCP/ ACP/SP/DYSP & other high ranking police officers take serious note of such malpractice hence simultaneously if a written application is submitted to them against the delinquent police officer usually a police officer is removed from the position of power immediately and later punished in departmental enquiry too.
