Jail mail - Revisiting Reforms Through Under Trial Review Committees

Oct 04, 2016 Download File

“Prison reforms have been the subject matter of discussion and decisions rendered by this Court from time to time …Unfortunately, it seems that the views of this Court over the 50 years (since Prabhakar Pandurang Sangzgiri in 1966) have continuously fallen on deaf ears and the situation does not seem to be changing even now. Unless due importance is given to the fundamental rights and human rights of the people, the right to life and the right to live with dignity under Article 21 of the Constitution will have no meaning.”
