This paper in detail discusses the violation of human rights in the criminal justice system with law related to it in Indian and International cases and the Provisions stated in UDHR. Construction of India, 1950 and Criminal Procedure Code, 1973. This paper attempts to research human rights in the criminal justice system and how human rights are violated by the departments of the Criminal Justice System. The Criminal system Justice system consists of three departments i.e., Police, Judiciary, and correctional services. This paper discussed these three parts in detail with related case laws for a better understanding of the concept. I have detailed the negligence of police and misusing of powers vested with them and delay in judicial proceedings by the department of Judiciary. In the three organs of Government, the judiciary has to turn out to be a leading edge of human rights in India. It plays this feature especially through revolutionary interpretation and inserts in the human rights provisions of the Constitution. Although the significance of human rights is universally commonplace and relatively recognized, implementation degrees range from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. In India, notwithstanding massive expansions throughout the spectrum of human rights, implementation has now no longer been that satisfactory. Recently, the International Commission of Jurists, Geneva had warned that in India those very human rights stand threatened. This Paper additionally has stated some steps to bring out better reforms in Criminal Justice Systems.
