The main aim of the Criminal Justice-System of India is to ensure fair and impartial trial of each and every accused who has been put behind bars in the Indian territory. Our country follows the adversary system for conducting the trial of an accused. Under this system, it is the prosecution who has to prove the guilt of the accused beyond a reasonable doubt. The Criminal Justice-System of India follows some principles to ensure fair trial but still, India lags behind in the Rule of Law Index. According to the World Justice Project(WJP), 2019 Rule of Law Index India has been ranked 68 out of 128 countries.
