Where do you stay i mean which far as i know that as per new supreme court law police can not arrest without a warrant that to after all investigations and chart sheet is prepared.

How come they arrested you and now confiscating all items.

They did not do this in my case yet.

Rahul, which supreme court law are you talking about? Can you tell me Pls? If this is true, then why are people still taking AB?

Any advice you can give m on this please.

Rakesh, As far as I know police can arrest you after the fir is filed. And they do have the power to confiscate anything that is relevant to the investigation. The new supreme court law that rahul is talking about, I don't have any idea, maybe it has just come out, he can explain better..

@rahul, dude which supreme court law are you talking about? Pls explain.. Thanks..

there is no such decision/law ,rahul.


Earlier police used to arrest on fir immediately but now they investigate first and get chart sheet prepared then get the warrent and arrest before that people can get AB.

After FIR the police now needs the permission of DCP in some states before arrest. They can arrest before charge sheet and during investigation.. @ rahul
