The Law of Arrest In India

Section 42 gives another situation where a police officer can arrest a person. If a person has committed an offence in the presence of a police officer, or where he is accused of committing a non-cognizable offence and in such a situation he refuses to give his name and residence on being asked by the police officer, or he gives false name or residence, then in such cases the police can arrest him without warrant. But the purpose of arrest shall solely be for determining the exact details of the wrong doer. These details will include his name and address.
