P Chidambaram’s legal system was corrupted only by imprisoning the poor without trial

hear the news

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has raised questions about the law and order situation in the country. P Chidambaram on Saturday alleged that the legal system in the country is broken and only the poor are languishing in jail without trial or bail. Citing National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data, he said most of the undertrials belonged to poor and oppressed sections and hoped that the recent Supreme Court order would bring some relief to such people.

Chidambaram tweeted, “According to NCRP data, 76 percent of all remands are remand prisoners. 27 percent are illiterate, 41 percent don’t even have 10th pass. What does this mean? Most remand prisoners are poor. And mostly they belong to the oppressed classes. ” “Without trial and bail, the legal system is so corrupt that only the poor suffer in jail.

The former Union minister said the rate of remand prisoners in Jammu and Kashmir was 91 per cent. Chidambaram said, “I am sure that most of them are in jail on charges of inciting violence or engaging in violence, which is yet to be proven. So it remains to be seen that these poor, destitute prisoners will be freed by the recent Supreme Court order. No relief.”

The Supreme Court on Friday said some “out-of-the-box” thinking is needed to free people from jail and reduce the burden of criminal cases in courts. The Supreme Court has directed the government to release under-trial prisoners who have spent most of their sentences in jail during the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’. The court said that this will reduce the pressure on the prisoners in the jails and also reduce the burden of pending cases in the lower courts. A bench comprising Justice SK Kaul and Justice MM Sundaresh made the observation during a hearing on appeals and bail petitions pending in the country’s high courts. He said that closing the pending criminal cases in the lower courts is an important aspect. The Supreme Court last week ACHIed displeasure over the long delay in hearing bail pleas of convicted prisoners.

The court said that if the accused is acquitted after 10 years of trial, who will give him back his life? If a case cannot be decided within 10 years, he should be granted bail. The court asked the ASG to inform the government about these recommendations.
