Custodial torture is a widespread problem in India, where law enforcement officials frequently use violence and abuse to extract information or obtain confessions from individuals in their custody. This paper examines the issue of custodial torture in India from a legal perspective, with a particular focus on the rights of under-trial prisoners. The paper analyzes the existing legal framework and proposes a reformative approach to address the issue, including measures to increase accountability for law enforcement officials, improve legal protections for detainees, and reform the criminal justice system.
