Preventive detention can’t be invoked over law & order fears, says Supreme Court

In an important decision, the Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the provision for preventive detention cannot be invoked over apprehension of law and order problems and said a person can be detained only in cases where public order is directly affected. Differentiating between the two, the apex court said that "law and order" comprehends disorders of less gravity than those affecting "public order", which affects the larger public, leading to harm, danger or alarm or feeling of insecurity.
