In the era of increase in the number of cases involving police lawlessness, political anarchy, crimes and harassment against women, custodial torture and various other human rights’ violations, introduction of compensatory jurisprudence took place. The revival of the doctrine of natural rights among the nations is of great importance in the field of jurisprudence in the present scenario. This article would understand the need and object of compensation to the victims and would examine the existing laws governing compensation to the victims. This paper would evaluate the role played by judiciary in granting compensation to the victims. Compensatory jurisprudence is an emerging concept and it provides that victims of crime are not to be ignored and the offender been convicted must be aware of his obligation and liability towards the victims who suffered loss as a result of his wrong doings.
