Attorney at law Om Lalla says that the police are not bound by law to take anyone for psychological evaluation.
Speaking to News Power Now this morning he revealed that there was no legal obligation by police to take someone for counselling, especially in cases where an investigation is ongoing.
However, he revealed that for the purposes of interviewing or taking statements the police have an underlying duty to ensure that the way in which they proceed is with due care.
This is so especially in cases where they suspect someone may have some mental or psychological issue.
Mr. Lalla also disclosed that the police have a victim support unit which provides help for someone who is a victim of crime.
