Changes In The Laws Of Arrest

Changes In The Laws Of Arrest
In State of Punjab vs. Ajaib Singh, arrest is defined as “Arrest means a physical restraint put on a person as a result of allegation of accusation that he has committed a crime or an offence of quasi criminal nature.”

If the person to be arrested submits to the custody of the police officer or other person making the arrest, the word or action, his arrest is complete. If, however, he does not so submit the person executing the arrest warrant can touch his body or confine him and this will complete the arrest.

The word arrest, when used in its ordinary and natural sense it means the apprehension or restraint or the deprivation of one’s personal liberty.
