Statement 2 is correct: In interstate arrests, the police have an obligation to present an arrested person before a magistrate within 24 hours. This excludes the time necessary for the journey from the place of arrest to the court of the magistrate. Further, no such person shall be detained in custody beyond the said period without the authority of a magistrate.
