Law For Other Spices - By Maneka Gandhi

Q. Does the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 provide the police with powers of search and seizure?

A. Yes. Section 32 of the Act, states that if any police officer, not below the rank of sub-inspector, has reason to believe that an offence of cruelty has been committed or that any person has in his possession the skin of any such animal with any part of the head attached thereto, he may enter and search place or any place in which he has reason to believe any such skin to be, and may seize such skin or any article or thing used or intended to be used in the commission of such offence.

Also, if a police officer, not below the rank of sub-inspector, has reason to believe that Phooka or any other operation of the nature referred to in section 12, has been performed or will be performed on any animal within the limits of his jurisdiction, he may enter any place in which he has reason to believe such animal to be, and may seize the animal and produce it for the examination by the veterinary officer in charge of the area in which the animal is seized.
