Right to speedy trial is a notion which deals with disposal of cases as soon as possible so as to make the judiciary more effective and responsible. The main object to right to speedy trial is to inculcate Justice in the society. The very basic purpose for which every state machinery sets up the court system is to award justice to the victims of crime. Speedy trial is a fundamental right inherent in the guarantee of life and personal liberty protected in Article 21 of the Constitution and any accused who is denied this right of speedy trial is enabled to approach Supreme Court under Article 32 for the purpose of applying such right. If a person is deprived of his freedom under a process which is not ‘reasonable fair and just’, such deprivation would be violative of his Fundamental Right under Article 21 and he would be entitled to implement such Fundamental Right and protected his release. In this paper is discussed about the right to speedy trial remedy for accused and victim.
