Procedure of arrest in the current situation - COVID19


According to law if one gets arrested, he has to be taken to a magistrate within 24hrs.
But in current situation courts are closed due to Covid19(coronavirus).
So whether will they take us to a magistrate or keep in police custody. OR What will b d procedure?

Duty magistrates have been designated by every court. The accused will be produced before the Duty magistrate as per procedure of law within 24 hours.

But who shall move either for the Govt or against the Accused in a Bail hearing or who shall stand in for surety ???
As per directives of Various Bar Association/s &/or Bar Councils Ld. Advocates are to abstain from Judicial proceedings in the Courts of Law.

Courts may be closed, but  executive magistrates will be available, as such, competent  executive magistrate can remand the accused in police/judicial custody for  a period of 7 days. Refer to Sub Section  (2-A) of section 167 CrPc.

It is not mandatory for the so called experts to reply/suggest the querists, if they themselves have no idea in such abnormal situation. However, the SC has suggested that during the Covid- 19 pendemic, the under trial inmates with the not so serious offences be released immediately on their furnishing personal bonds. So the same procedure may be followed with the query of the original querist Pankaj Ray. Please see that I have used the word 'may' and not 'must or should'.
