The Tripura high court has issued guidelines to prevent automatic arrests under Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code. The guidelines state that investigating officers must fill a checklist of parameters before arresting an accused and failure to comply may result in departmental action. Magistrates who authorize detention without recording reasons will also face departmental action.
