What happens when the officers, on fake grounds, search and seize my property and arrest me in the process?
The Act provides for punishment of officers who, without reasonable grounds of suspicion, enter or search and seize property and arrest people. Their punishment is of imprisonment up to six months, or fine or both. Any person who gives wrongful information to the officers, who further carry out the search, seizure and arrest of this information, is also punishable by imprisonment for up to two years, fine or both. 1
