A Sub-Inspector of Police was attacked and later arrested when he went to arrest a lawyer inside the High Court complex of Madras. The Advocate was involved in an attempted murder case. The sub-Inspector was surrounded by other lawyers and was attacked and based on the complaint raised by the advocates, the sub-inspector was arrested. As a common man, I have the following questions:
1) Is it an offence to arrest an Advocate who was evading the police in an attempt to murder related enquiry in the High Court Complex ?
2) Is there any specific rule or law that an accused should not be arrested inside the court complex?
3) Can an ordinary person who attempted murder hide inside a court premises and evade arrest ?
