    Select Question Language :


    A, a police officer, is directed by her superior to arrest B. A arrests B’s younger sister, C, in the mistaken belief that she is actually B. Has A committed any offence? Principle A person who has done something that is an offence under the law due to a mistake of facts (and not due to a mistake of law), that led that person to believe in good faith that she was bound by law to do such an act is excused

    Options :-

    1. A has committed an offence, since a mistake as to the identity of a person is a mistake of law, and not a mistake of fact.

    2. A has not committed an offence, since she was acting under the directions of a superior officer. 

    3. A has committed an offence as she has disobeyed her superior officer's order to arrest B when she arrested C.

    4. A has not committed an offence, since she had made a mistake of fact in good faith, and not a mistake of law, in arresting C instead of B.
