The Kerala High Court came down heavily on police officers for handcuffing and chaining a man to the handrail of the police station for merely seeking a receipt of a complaint he had filed earlier.
In the landmark case of Paramvir Singh Saini vs.Baljit Singh, the bench comprising Justices RF Nariman, KM Joseph and Aniruddha Bose issued a slew of directions to all States and Union Territories to install CCTV cameras in all police stations to mitigate the repeated concerns being raised from different quarters about unabated police violence in India.The order made it clear that the CCTVs must be equipped with night vision and audio/video footage recording facilities. The Court also issued directions for the recording of the CCTV footages and their preservation, for a minimum of 6 months.
Since then, the SC has taken up this matter in various cases and has shown grave concern on the state of affairs of the state and their inability to provide a firm action plan for implementation.The court's dilettante disposition for fundamentals rights is quite conspicuously reflected by its own line of decisions.Thus it is absolutely necessary for the court to take up cases relating to custodial torture and monitor the implementation of the directions by the Centre and States.
