Extra-Judicial Killings: A Threat to Democracy

Aman Kumar Sinha | Kumar Adarsh | Vedang Upadhayay

Abstract: Extra judicial killings have become a very serious problem these days as it is the worst form of human rights violation, irrespective of sex or age. Brutal forms of violence are performed by these law enforcing agencies. These violence are done under the name of investigation and interrogation and sometimes these interrogations lead to the death of the victim. Viciousness in legal care is as genuine an issue as in police guardianship. Abuse and ruthless attack is every day schedule of authorities prompting the huge number of passing in guardianship. From torture to death, several fundamental rights of a person (recognized by the Indian Constitution) are hampered, while in the custody. Supreme Court and other courts have given several guidelines in several cases regarding the arrest, bail and several rights of the victims for their protection from such violence. Despite those guidelines and advisories, the violence is still on its peak throughout the country. This article tries to analyze the causes and different methods of custodial violence, and how it contradicts with our legal system and what are the different provisions under our law for protecting the rights of the victims.
