Looking into the Haze: A Study on Prison Monitoring in India 2016
Looking into the Haze: A Study on Prison Monitoring in India is a must read for human rights activists and civil society organisations who care about a prisoner’s rights. The penal system in India is a closed institution that discourages independent monitoring leading to widespread abuse of legal and human rights among the jailed. Effective monitoring by qualified and sensitive independent monitors would stop mental and physical torture of prisoners. It will come as a shock to most readers that independent monitors regularly inspect less than one percent of prisons in India.
