distress warrant

In an execution case of maintanence under hindu marriage act, if a distress warrant is issued for non payment of maintanence and Police comes to the home of person against whom the distress warrant is issued and if the person is not found at home. Then what? 1) Can police launch a search operation and arrest that person from anywhere? 2) Can police just sieze all his property and send the report with property papers to court? 3) Can police just send a report that the person was not found (if no property found) 4) What else can happen? Please give suitable and right advice as the person is confused

Arrest warrant can be issued by the concerned court against that person, is the first step.


Distress warrant is meant for attaching the property.   The person is notarrested.    If the person is not found against whom distress warrant isissued, it cannot be executed.   The Policewill  file report.   It is better that you clear the maintenance amount to avoid all these things.
