Union Home Minister Amit Shah has stated the Centre plans to result in “radical changes” within the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) and the Indian Evidence Act to make them trendy and related to the wants of current occasions.

Shah, throughout a speech on the National Forensic Science University (NFSU) in Gandhinagar on Monday, stated “the days of third-degree torture are over” and proposed that forensic investigation be made obligatory for any crime that entails a punishment of six or extra years, the Indian Express reported.

“The Indian government is in talks… to bring about radical changes in the IPC, CrPC and the Evidence Act. We want to make them modern as per the needs of the times and remove outdated elements and meet today’s challenges by adding new sections. I have had a suggestion for long that for all crimes in which the punishment is above six years, the visit of the forensics team should be compulsory. The prospect sounds great but do we have the manpower for it)?” the minister stated.

Shah added that the “days of third-degree are over” and through the use of scientific proof, “even a hard-hearted person can be broken down and convicted if forensic work is carried out properly”.

Speaking concerning the two sorts of accusations cops face — of no motion and excessive motion — Shah stated simply and pure motion is “possible only when we make scientific evidence a major base of our investigation”.

On the brand new Centre for Excellence for Research and Analysis of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances at NFSU, Shah stated, “It was extremely necessary to set up such a centre to strengthen the criminal justice system of this country… There are many challenges ahead of India in the 21st century and to overcome them, we have to systematise our criminal justice system.”
