Blatant misuse of power

Friday, May 18, 2018

Custodial deaths never end in India. The lack of action against the “uniformed wrongdoers” is to be blamed for the recurrence of such incidents.  The very men who are supposed to uphold the laws are routinely found misusing their powers and do not respect the laws of the country. Custodial violence including torture and death in police lock-ups strike a blow at the rule of law, which demands that the powers of the executive should not only be derived from law but also that the same should be limited by law. It is therefore, for the government and the legislature to give a serious thought to their commendation of the Law Commission and National Human Rights Commission and bring about appropriate changes in the law, both to curb custodial crimes and also to ensure that the guilty are punished. The police keep taking the law into their own hands and keep on framing innocent people when they cannot find the real culprits.
