Abstract

Although it has been 20 years since India signed the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, a ratification of the same is still nowhere on the anvil. India does not have any law specifically catering towards the prevention of custodial torture, nor does it have any robust procedural safeguards against possible custodial violence.
