In which among the following situations, a person’s fundamental right under Article 22 would be violated:
1. The person was arrested and not produced before a magistrate within 24 hours
2. The person was put in jail pursuant to a judicial order
3. The person was arrested under Preventive Detention law and was not produced before a magistrate within 24 hours
Choose the correct option:

Answer: [A] Only 1

The right under Article 22(2) of the Constitution is available only against illegal detention by police. It is not available against custody in jail of a person pursuant to a judicial order. Article 22(2) does not operate against the judicial order. For preventive detention, please go thru article 22(4).
