About the Webinar

According to NCRB, only 26 policemen were convicted of custodial violence despite 1,727 such deaths being recorded in India between 2001-2018. Police forces have the authority to exercise force to enforce laws and maintain law and order in a state. However, this power may be misused in several ways.

The Second Administrative Reforms Commission (2007) has observed that there is a need to have an independent complaints authority to inquire into cases of police misconduct. The Supreme Court of India in Prakash Singh v. Union of India also ordered the Centre and states to set up authorities to lay down guidelines for police functioning. Yet, these and various other recommendations made across eight reports of the National Police Commission have not been implemented in the criminal justice system.

The webinar, titled “Reshaping Policing: A Legal Reform”, will be focusing on the different steps by which reformation of the system to reduce this misuse of the powers by the authorities can be possible, as well as raise awareness on the same.

The webinar will be hosting guest speaker Mr Vibhuti Narain Rai, IPS. Mr. Vibhuti joined the Indian Police Service in 1975 and was awarded the Police Medal for Meritorious Services and President’s Police Medal for Distinguished Services during his career, which included several daunting experiences and accolades.

Besides being a distinguished police official Mr. Vibhuti is an acclaimed Hindi fiction writer and has published several novels to his name. Mr. Vibhuti is an activist who has been fighting fundamentalist and obscurantist forces for years. He has raised his voice and written boldly against communal biases of Indian Police. Mr. Vibhuti was also the Vice-Chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi Antarrashtriya Hindi Vishwavidyalaya, Wardha.
