The Indian criminal justice system sorely lacks substantial guidelines/legislative provisions to regulate the custodial deaths. It is considerably pertinent to have a substantial legal framework on this issue, in the wake of gaining from different incidents in India, it is of utmost importance to India to set legitimate principles for Custodian Deaths. Many other countries have adopted a comprehensive legislative provision for custodian deaths whereas in India arrestees are often subjected to harassment, be it mental, physical or emotional and are denied basic protection, and therefore, there is an urgent requirement to fix this deficiency in our existing justice delivery framework.
