Rights of an arrested person

Arrest means apprehension of a person by legal authority so as to cause deprivation of his liberty. Thus, after arrest, a person’s liberty is in control of the arrester. Arrest is an important tool for bringing an accused before the court as well as to prevent a crime or prevent a person suspected of doing crime from running away from the law. However, to ensure that this power is not used arbitrarily, several restraints have been put on it, which, indirectly, can be seen as recognition of the rights of a person being arrested.
