a woman can not be arrested after sunset and before sunrise. However this rule is subject to exceptions

Not a big deal, as even Jayalalitha the southern queem was arrested and taken to judicial custody from CM office.

Thank you for your question
Section 46 CrPC-Arrest how made
46(4)- No woman shall be arrested after sunset and before sunrise, and where such exceptional circumstances exist, the woman police officer shall, by making a written report, obtain the prior permission of the Judicial Magistrate of the first class within whose local jurisdiction the offence is committed or the arrest is to be made.
Hope this will help you

That Sub Section 4 of Section 46 of the CrPc., opens with the expression "Save in exceptional Circumstances", and literal interpretation of the provisions makes it very clear that arrest is an exception according to the circumstances of the case, and this section never prohibits arrest of a woman. .
