Curb custodial deaths
While hearing a case of the custodial death, the Supreme Court has remarked that death due to custodial violence is abhorrent and not acceptable in a civilized society.
The court said: “The custodial violence on the deceased, which led to the death is abhorrent and not acceptable in the civilized society. The offense committed by the accused is a crime not against the deceased alone, but was against humanity and clear violations of rights guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution.”
The court pointed out that the police are the protector of law and order and people look forward to it to protect their life and property. The death of under trial prisoners is a common practice in our country. Hope that the Government should initiate action to curb the custodial deaths and establish a mechanism that will ensure the human rights of under trial prisoners.
