Circle of Justice: A National Report on Under Trial Review Committees
The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative’s new ground-breaking report: Circle of Justice: A National Report on Under Trial Review Committees throws a sharp light on the plight of undertrials in India. Undertrials make up an astounding 67 percent of India’s prison population. These are men and women who have been incarcerated and have yet to be tried in a court of law for crimes they allegedly committed. The report is based on solid field research and is backed up by extensive use of the Right to Information law.
