For Indian social construction, police are the primary association. Law Enforcement Authorities are considered a protector of citizens’ human and legal rights. When citizens are in a time of need and are unsure what to do or whom to contact, the police department and a police officer are the most accessible and approachable organization and person for them. Human rights infringement is often seen when human rights are violated during police interrogation. This paper focuses on the relation between a police interrogation and human rights, rights of an arrestee, the techniques, and principles of police interrogation, custodial violence, and landmark judgments regarding the protection of human rights during interrogation. It also underlines the need for legal aid during inquiries to prevent violation of such rights.
Human rights, police interrogation, custodial violence.
