duly filed and furnish the reasons and materials which
necessitated the arrest, while forwarding/producing
the accused before the Magistrate for further detention;

(4) The Magistrate while authorising detention
of the accused shall peruse the report furnished by the
police officer in terms aforesaid and only after
recording its satisfaction, the Magistrate will authorise
detention;

(5) The decision not to arrest an accused, be
forwarded to the Magistrate within two weeks from the
date of the institution of the case with a copy to the
Magistrate which may be extended by the
Superintendent of police of the district for the reasons
to be recorded in writing;

(6) Notice of appearance in terms of Section 41A
of Cr.PC be served on the accused within two weeks
from the date of institution of the case, which may be
extended by the Superintendent of Police of the District

aforesaid shall apart from rendering the police officers
concerned liable for departmental action, they shall
also be liable to be punished for contempt of court to be
instituted before High Court having territorial
jurisdiction.

(8) Authorizing detention without recording reasons
as aforesaid by the judicial Magistrate concerned shall be
