Corruption and corrupt practices in prisons are at its peak. The Supreme Court should intervene and take suo motu action immediately. Instances of attacks by the police on innocent citizens and misuse of power by them are reported in the media almost every day.

The police keep taking the law into their own hands because they are supported by goondas and corrupt politicians.
