Once the criminal court issues an arrest warrant, the only time it will be removed from the national crime database is when the person in question is arrested. Any discrepancies or errors in the information presented when seeking the warrant will not affect the arrest order’s powers unless such mistakes significantly impact the suspect’s rights.

An active arrest warrant may only be recalled by the issuing judicial authority in two scenarios:

  • If another individual is arrested in the case and charged with the crime
  • When the evidence presented in court is no longer valid

In all other situations, an active order for arrest stays in the system in the form of an outstanding warrant until the individual whose name has been issued is arrested.

While bench warrants are issued when a person fails to appear in court on a scheduled date or skips bail, arrest orders issued in criminal cases are only granted when the police specifically request the court for it.

A writ has to be filed in the court, which is considered before the warrant is issued. In some cases, the victim/ witnesses may even be asked to provide sworn testimony. All of this is done to ascertain the probable cause, which is a requirement for the issue of an active arrest warrant.
