1. Under Art.32, Can Supreme Court (SC) issue writs (all 5 writs) to only State or to both State and Private Individuals like High Courts (HC) under Art.226?
2. If SC is allowed to ONLY issue against State, then how can SC issue Habeas Corpus to Private individual? And one more doubt: if an individual detained another person, it is 'Kidnap' - Offence then he should be arrested. What is the point of issuing Writ to him?
3. To my knowledge, Mandamus Writ cannot be issued against President, Governors, HC Judge, Parliament and State Legislators. What about SC Judge? Can he/she issued against or not?
4. Can Prohibition Writ be issued against HC Proceedings?
