Arrest and Detention in India: Law, Procedure and Practice
English | ISBN: 9354792448 | 2022 | 364 pages | PDF | 16 MB
Human rights enshrined in the Constitution of India protect Indian citizens against misuse of powers by the State and its functionaries. However, detainee rights are often neglected in custody. Arrest and Detention in India: Law, Procedure and Practice critically examines arrest and detention laws in India, focusing on constitutional guarantees and criminal jurisprudence.
The book studies legislations that have invited much criticism from human rights activists, such as the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), Armed Forced (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) and Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS). It explores topical areas such as inter-state arrests, juvenile crime, remand and detainee rights. This book evaluates the controversial powers of arrest and detention, arguing for stricter regulation in terms of the international, constitutional and human rights mandates. The book examines public safety and whether it can be implemented through legal standards that compromise personal liberty.
