What are the limits of the police station and the police officers in the station? Are common people allowed to take pictures in a police station? Can they confiscate your phone for clicking pictures in the station premises? If yes then what else can they delete? Can they arrest someone or even threaten to arrest that person for taking pictures of the station?

A. Dear Client,
You have asked a lot of questions.Your answers are as follows:
1.Limits.. you mean territorial limits... Each Police Station has got certain areas for which they are responsible for maintaining Law and Order.
2.Police has the Power to arrest in suspicion.There are certain dos and donots which Police never follows.
3.No, Police Station is neither a Museum nor a Zoo.
4.Yes, they can
5. They can delete the pictures concerning their misdeeds which they do not want to show to others.
6. Not supposed to be.
You could have done it differently.
In a state in Eastern India Police Steep in the Police Station on the Table and also use mosquito net.That photo appeared in the front page of a local daily.Then you can imagine the situation.

A. Dear client police station is govt property and superior of that property have power to protect as well. If some one take pictures of police station or any other govt property in good intentions with valid reasons then no one can oppose you.but if you are taking pictures just for disturbing them ,then you are creating obstruction into performing their duties.take permission from authority and if they permit then you can take photo.
