  • Allows detention of any individual for up to two years without a trial or charge.

  • Detention order under the PSA is issued either by the Divisional Commissioner or District Magistrate.

 “in the case of a person acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the state”, 

“any person is acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order”.
