Thus every individual of the society has the inherent right to be treated with dignity in all situations including arrest and keeping in custody by the police. In spite of various international and national legal standards for the protection of rights of persons in police custody, human rights violations in police custody are endemic in India and are tarnishing the image of India abroad.

Thought the academic world and judiciary have become conscious of the need of a the causes of human rights violations in police custody, its importation into the realm of Human Rights, on any systematic scale, is not yet attempted.
