Abstract

A bench of justices F.M. Kalifulla and S.S.Nijjar was aggrieved when amicus curiae A.M. Singhvi moved an application of 15 more guidelines to suppress custodial excesses, which has resulted in the death of 11,820 and 3,532 reported cases of custodial torture between 2007 and 2012. The supreme court viewed a series of seriously ineffective implemented directions to rein custodial death and sought explanation from the centre and states after being informed that nearly 12,000 persons died-either in jail or in police stations-in last 5years.This worst form of human rights violation is a world wide phenomenon that is inflicted upon the individuals regardless of their sex or age.This has become a very serious and alarming problem in third world nations like India.This article tries to analyse the various provisions given under the constitution providing basic fundamental rights to individuals in custody.This article also analyses various guidelines provided by the courts and awarding of compensation to the victim as an important methodology even though the constitution does not expressly provides the right of compensation unlike other legal systems.

Key Words

Implementations, guidelines, custodial excesses, phenomenon, compensation, judicial custody, police custody, state immunity.
