IPC section 506 is bailable or non-bailable offence? (can Police have power to direct arrest to that person?) when there is NC filed u/s 506 then police can have authority or power to arrest a person ?

Based on the query raised by following is my opinion :

Offence under section 506 is non-cognizable and bailable. There cannot be an FIR of offence u/s 506 only. No power to arrest is goven to police as it is a non-cognizable offence.
