A young person was arrested. While examining it, the Karnataka High Court concluded that it was an illegal arrest.

The youngster, a lawyer named Kuldeep, was entitled to get a compensation of Rs 3 lakh, the court held.

The state government has to disburse the amount and shall recover it from the police personnel responsible for such an illegal act.

The police IG has to conduct an inquiry.

Apart from the compensation awarded by the HC, the lawyer is free to approach a civil court for compensation as per the law, the HC directed.

The police did not abide by the SC directions during the arrest. That is a serious violation the police have committed. The HC observed that such conduct of the police is tyrannical. That cannot be allowed when the rule of law is supreme.
