Police custody of arrested accused


When it is necessary for the police to interrogate an accused who is remanded to Judicial custody to take under  police custody, the following points shall be borne in mind:


Taking a person to police custody is only granted when the magistrate finds sufficient reasons. Therefore the police officer in his requisition shall state satisfactory reasons.


Police custody can be given only within the first fifteen days of remand and that too for a maximum period of 15 days. Police custody can be taken for different remands made in different cases.


After the period of custody is over, the accused person shall duly be produced before the magistrate within time.
