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.

Disclaimer: The above query and its response is NOT a legal opinion in any way whatsoever as this is based on the information shared by the person posting the query at and has been responded by one of the Divorce Lawyers at to address the specific facts and details.
