Kerala High Court Lays Down Guidelines for Detention Under Preventive Detention Laws - 27.04.2021

Kerala High Court has prescribed safeguards against arbitrary and unjustified invasion of personal liberty in cases of preventive detention, stating that, "if the detaining authority wants to preventively detain a smuggler, it can certainly do so, but only in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution and the law, and if there is a breach of any such provision, the rule of law requires that the detenu must be set at liberty, however wicked or mischievous he may be."
