Arrest

Indian law requires arrests of persons committing crimes to be carried out by the police. Most of the time the police need a warrant issued by a Magistrate to arrest someone. When serious crimes are involved, the police can arrest even without a warrant. An arrested person has certain rights that they should exercise while being arrested.
