Exploring the Nexus of the Rights of Undertrial Prisoners in India with Emphasis on the BNSS(Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita) 2023, and the United Nations' Role"

Abstract In India persons who are detained in jail while awaiting trial on criminal charges are referred to as under-trial prisoners.. How does a system that claims to be equitable and justifiable explain denying freedom to its people based on the presumption of ‘innocent until proven guilty’? An efficient criminal justice system must unavoidably guarantee that those who are accused get a fair trial for the crimes they are allegedly guilty of. This article looks forward to embracing the adaptation of a new approach towards prolonged incarceration in jails to recognize the rights of undertrials by analyzing the proposed changes under the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita 2023. In a comparable situation to the indigents wealthy people are impoverished to secure their freedom so why does the system of bail create prejudice based on economic discrimination? This article highlights the rights of undertrial prisoners mainly on humanitarian grounds internationally on the roles of the United Nations that enshrined the Right to personal liberty and the right to equality related to non-discrimination based on economic grounds. Because different groups have objectively different social ideals and social behaviours, the poorest and least fortunate members of society typically pay a disproportionate part of the socioeconomic consequences of crime.
Keywords undertrial prisoner, criminal justice system, economic discrimination, right to justice, personal Liberty, United Nations.
