The Missing Guards - A Study on Rajasthan’s Court Production System
This CHRI study analyses the court production system in Rajasthan. The court production system involves synergy of multiple actors and processes. It is only through their harmonious interaction that the right of undertrials to be produced in person before the courts every 15 days can be safeguarded. The study examines the chronic shortage of police escorts that leads to routine non-production of undertrials across the state. It also looks at the Magistrates’ acceptance of this practice of non-production.
