iacst-2022

This chapter has shed some light on the country's Criminal Justice System for a better understanding of the student. It is important to understand the laws of one's land. Students should understand the essence of the chapter and make a note of the following points to gain a proper understanding of the chapter:

  • It is important to have a robust Criminal Justice System for the speedy delivery of justice.
  • The four important pillars of the criminal justice system are the police, the Public Prosecutor, the defence lawyer, and finally, the judge.
  • Cognisable refers to an offence for which the police may arrest a person without the court's permission.
  • Article 22 of the Constitution and Indian Criminal law ensures that every person who is being arrested is granted the following Fundamental Rights: He/She has a Right to be informed of the crime/offence at the time of arrest for which he/she person is being arrested. The person has the right to be presented before a magistrate within 24 hours of arrest. It also gives a Right to that person to not be ill-treated or tortured during arrest or in custody. The article further states that the confessions made in police custody cannot be used as evidence against the accused. On a special note, a boy under the age of 15 and women cannot be called to the police station only for questioning.
  • Cross-examine refers to the questioning of a witness who has already been examined by the opposing side to determine his/her testimony's veracity.
  • Detention refers to the act of being kept in illegal custody by the police.
  • Witness refers to the person called upon in court to provide a first-hand account of what he/she has seen, heard, or knows.
