It cannot be definitely said when the police may apprehend him. After the lodging of F.I.R., the arrest can be made by the police at will.

The courts have repeatedly held that arrest should be the last option for the police and it should be restricted to those exceptional cases where arresting the accused is imperative or his custodial interrogation is required. Irrational and indiscriminate arrests are gross violation of human rights. In the case of JOGINDER KUMAR VERSUS STATE OF UP. [1994 (4) TMI 385 - SUPREME COURT], the Apex Court....... + More
