The plea before the Supreme Court notes that "Custodial Torture/Deaths/Rapes are a chilling reminder of how the excessive use of force has become a routine in India" leading to deaths.
Following the custodial torture and death of P Jayaraj and J Bennix, a plea in the Supreme Court urges it to issue directions or lay guidelines to fill the legal lacunae surrounding custodial deaths, tortures and rapes.
The plea filed by an NGO, People's Charioteer Organization through Advocate Devesh Saxena and drawn by Advocate Shashwat Anand calls for guidelines from Court concerning custodial deaths, rapes and tortures to be passed by invoking the inherent jurisdiction of the Court under Article 142.
