What are the Rights of an Arrested Person?
“Innocent until proven guilty”, in context to this phrase, it’s very obvious that in India the burden of proof to prove any allegation lies upon the prosecution. Until and unless, an accused is proved guilty, he or she cannot be considered as a criminal. An accused who is sent behind the bars and undergoing trial is considered as an undertrial prisoner, people often mistook an accused person for a criminal. In reality, an accused person is an entity who has been alleged to have committed an offence.
