MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
JOHN W. LORD, Jr., District Judge.
Relator is presently confined in the State Correctional Institution at Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. He initially filed his petition for habeas corpus with the district court of the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Since relator had been sentenced by the Philadelphia courts, Judge Frederick V. Follmer of the Middle District, in an order dated December 15, 1966, transferred the petition to this district pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. § 2241(d).
Relator filed his petition on the mimeographed form provided by the Middle District. The format is similar to that employed in this district. In response to the form request to state in detail the facts supporting the allegation of unlawful custody, relater replied:
"Petitioner was deprived of Constitutional due process in that the police refused to take him before a magistrate for a prompt preliminary hearing. The police waited 48 hrs. to give him a hearing because they interrogated him and held him incommunicado to try and pressure him to admit he was guilty and to sign a statement which he refused to do."
