cop arrested staff for non registered firm by properitor

Dear friends My mother works in beauty saloon industry past 25 yrs , her latest job where she had joined a 3 months ago has caused trouble. She had no knowledge the properitor did not register the firm, the vigelence walked for checking the license / registration where the owner did not have one. Owner is absconded . With this the police has taken the working staffs for enquiry but post hadn't released them yet. Pls help me advice at this juncture. Regards Jennifer

Dear querist,

If police has arrested your mother then your mother has to apply for bail and the case has to contest.


Retired employee.

It appears that you are not having proper knowledge and facts and merely assuming and have apprehensions.

Not registering a firm is not a crime as registration of the firm is not compulsory as per Partnership Act.

The presumption is that without having any professional qualification the saloon may be doing some business like quacks and there might have been complaints by the public against the beauty salon.

please do not presume things, and do not spread panic, when you really apprehend some harm through police, prepare for facing by contacting a local advocate well in advance and act as per his guidance.



Yes, the facts posted are less than convincing. The cop can arrest a citizen only when a crime is inherent. It could be that the 'beauty saloon' has just been a face for some illegal acitivities.


agree with G. L. N Prasad..

Facts posted are incomplete and unconviencing.

However, it is better to consult and engage a local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts, professional guidance and necessary proceeding, if there is some truth in the story.
