Human Rights & life of Prisoners
« on: February 24, 2012, 04:42:25 AM »
Apart from torture, various other physical ill-treatment like putting of fetters, iron bars are generally taken recourse to in jails. Some of these are under the colour of provisions in Jail Manuals. The permissible limits of these methods has been spelt out well in many decisions of this Court.

What Court would rather state is that if what is being done to prisoners in the above regard is to enforce prison discipline mentioned in various Jail Manuals, there exists a strong need for a new All India Jail Manual to serve as a model for the country, which manual would take note of what has been said about various punishments by this Court in its aforesaid decisions. Not only this, the century-old Indian Prison Act, 1894, needs a through look and is required to be replaced by a new enactment which would take care of the thinking of independent India and of Indian constitutional mores and mandates. The National Human Rights Commission has also felt that need for such exercise.

A reading of the Chapter IX on "Prison Discipline" in R.N. Datir's book on Prison as a Social System, shows that it some Jail Manuals even flogging/whipping has been retained as a punishment, which would not be permissible in view of the right enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution. Court has mentioned about this only to highlight the need for a new model All India Jail Manual.

Human rights are universal and are part of everyone equally. Although there are many personal who broken the law but their privileges as personal cannot be taken away from their being.
