The Extradition Act, 1962

16. Provisional warrant for apprehension of fugitive criminal.

  1. Any  magistrate  may  issue  a  provisional  warrant  for  the  apprehension of  a fugitive  criminal from any commonwealth country to  which this Chapter applies who is, or is suspected to be, in or on his  way to  India, on  such information  and under  such circumstances  as  would, in  his opinion, justify the issue of a warrant, if the offence  of which  the fugitive  criminal is  accused or has been convicted had  been committed  within  his  jurisdiction  and  such  warrant  may  be executed accordingly.
  2. A  magistrate issuing  a provisional  warrant shall forthwith  send  a  report  of  the  issue  of  the  warrant  together  with  the  information or a certified copy thereof to the Central Government, and  the Central  Government may,  if it  thinks fit,  discharge the person apprehended under such warrant.
  3. A fugitive criminal apprehended on a provisional warrant may, from time to time, be remanded for such reasonable time, not exceeding seven days at any one time, as under the circumstances seems requisite for the production of an endorsed warrant.
