Crimes occur in every society. But the true test of a society lies in the way its criminal justice system functions. Unfortunately, the standards of criminal justice system have been on a decline in India and have been a cause of worry for those at the helm who have been working tirelessly to uphold the values espoused by the country's judicial system. While the reason for the current scenario mainly rests with non-upgradation of the system, The Criminal Justice System in India emphasises the fact that the judges and lawyers have a duty towards society and their integrity and legal acumen determine the quality of justice.
