‘Implementation on ground a challenge’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 24: The Inspector General of Police (IGP)—Kashmir zone--- S M Sahai on Sunday said that laws and rules enacted for the Prison Management were sufficient enough to guarantee the human rights of an inmate.
“The only thing that comes in the way is the implementation of these laws on ground which is a challenge that needs to be taken care off,” the IGP said while speaking at a 3-day training program for prison officers on Human Rights and prison management organized by University Grants Commission (UGC), academic staff college University of Kashmir, Faculty of law and Prison Department. The program has been sponsored by Police Bureau of Research and Development New Delhi.
“It is a paradox to deliberate upon the human rights of a person whom we are subjecting to confinements but sociological, legal aspects that govern the criminal justice system to carry forward the purpose of justice in the society has devised it as a form of punishment but the purpose is not to punish the person. Despite being a detainee person does not lose his rights as a citizen and these have to be safeguarded,” the IGP said.
Sahai said the state had been entrusted the job of a regulator in the delivery of the criminal justice against any person who violates the laws of the society. “In our society meanings of justice are changing where it was exclusively retributionary, an eye for an eye in earlier times, now it is has changed to restorative and reformative one,” he said.
He said that we as a part of system need to deliver the justice in a pragmatic manner in a conformance with the law and regulations of the land.
The programme was also attended by the Vice-Chancellor of University of Kashmir Professor Riyaz Punjabi, DIG Prison Muhammad Sultan, Ex DG Prison S S Ali, Professor Mehrajuddin HOD faculty of law, V S Raja DIG Prison Karnataka, SSP Srinagar Aashiq Bukhari, prison officers of different ranks ,police officers and research scholars.
