The Police have powers of investigation and arrest.
At the police station the law allows the accused to consult a lawyer while under police custody, within a reasonable time. Family members may also be contacted. However, these requests can be refused if they interfere with investigations.
The Police can detain the accused for a maximum of 48 hours, but the police can obtain a Magistrate’s order if they wish to extend the custody to continue with investigations.
If the officer does not wish to detain you, he may let you go on a personal promise or put you on police bail.
