illegal arrest

If one know of a family member or friend being arrested without cause and whose whereabouts are being kept secret by the police, they can file an RTI application at the police station asking for information on the whereabouts of the person.

Since the information is relating to the life and liberty of a person the police are bound to give the required information.
