Contrary to popular perception, the judiciary is not working on the side of the police. In fact, the magistrate is appointed as an impartial third party who is supposed to rule on the evidence gathered by the cops.

When a petition for an arrest warrant is brought before the bench, it is the judge's responsibility to ensure the proof is enough to deem that the criminal occurrence involved the accused. This is termed as the establishment of probable cause and it is a legal requirement that cannot be ignored.
