Thankyou for your email.

There is no exemption in imposing punishment or following the prescribed rule for being a senior citizen. The court considers the fact that the accused is a senior citizen and normally allows concession and/ or award minimum prescribed punishment terms. There is no provision to grant relaxation/ exemption to a senior citizen while taking him to custody as per law but you can always file bail in the court taking plea of health condition and eventually take this matter forward.
