SC notice to Centre, states on custodial deaths, rapes

Hindustan Times

The Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre and states on a petition seeking a mandatory judicial probe in cases related to custodial deaths, rapes, or disappearances.

The plea, filed by activist Suhas Chakma highlighted the alleged non-implementation of a law that provides for a judicial enquiry into such cases.

The petition , heard by a bench of justices Rohinton Nariman and S Ravindra Bhat pointed out that Section 176(1A) which was inserted in the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) in 2006 to address the problem of custodial deaths and rapes, has remained on paper and not been implemented till date.
