Section 102 of the Code of Criminal Procedure enables a police officer to seize any property. It says: “(1) Any police officer may seize any property which may be alleged or suspected to have been stolen, or which may be found under circumstances which create suspicion of the commission of any offence; (2) Such police officer, if subordinate to the officer in charge of a police station, shall forthwith report the seizure to that officer.”

However, the Supreme Court has recently clarified that Section 102 does not allow the police to seize and attach immovable property of the accused during the probe.
