Section 45 provides for protection to members of the Armed Forces from arrest  for any act done or purported to be done by him in discharge of his official duties except after obtaining the consent of the Central Government. 

Else, for offences committed in personal capacity, he is liable like any other person.

Thanks, Mr. Om Praksh for pointing out the omission on my part. It is Section 45 CrPC.

Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Advocate)     30 September 2020

The querist has nowhere stated that he was drunk as a part of duty.  He has simply set a question paper leaving facts to the imagination of experts.


Hard fact is that Armed Forces person is more vulnerable if caught by the police as compared with other govt employees. Once involved in criminal case he loses chance of promotion and their continuation in service depends upon the promotion earned. Further discharge during case invites consequences of deprivation of terminal dues to be released only if acquitted on merit (not on technical grounds)..

But in some cases unaware of of the AF persons when questioned by police then instead of being polite try to show colour of uniform and get harsher treatment.

Mr. Om Prakash, let strive to share knowledge but kindly do not impose frustrations, that too, through abusive expressions!

Dear Sh. Om Parkash,

Anyone may be right or wrong as per you.

Please maintain decorum towards others. They are sparing their valuable time for the cause.

I Know this request would not work on you / you would again prefer to post harass post in reply, still requesting.

Please respect others, you may differ on every point but saying fool to others is not good habit / not warranted / not required.

You have the option to judge intelligence / knowledge / English of others, it would be better to post reasoned arguments instead of saying fools to other.

Om Prakash Ji, 

Your opinion, knowledge, dialogue, and frustration is acknowledged and understood, however, the kind of language being used by you is not apt for this forum. 

You have been intimated and warned about the same quite a few times now, however, no heed or respect has been paid to the request/warning by LAWyersClubIndia. 

Sadly, we will have to request you to kindly stop posting. 

Thanks and regards!
