Team Legistify

The primary responsibility for securing the arrest of a proclaimed offender rests with the police of the station in which he is a resident. A Proclaimed Offender may, however, be arrested by any police officer without any order from a Magistrate and without a warrant. Any private person may arrest a PO and hand him over without unnecessary delay to a police officer/ nearest police station.
