The humane treatment of prisoners of war had not become a concern until the second part of the nineteenth century. Many of the hardships that prisoners suffered during World War I were not prevented by the Hague Regulations, but they did provide a rational foundation for regulation.. The regulations' main flaws were a lack of definition and the lack of any enforcement measures, in addition to failing to foresee difficulties that developed during World War I. Following the First World War, a Geneva conference enacted new, more complex laws. The new rules, like the old ones, were not prepared for the new kinds of conflict that emerged as a result of their acceptance in the Would War. Further, the cases of Dharam Pal Singh, Major Ashok Suri, Flight Lieutenant K Nachiketa have been discussed.
