Supreme Court expresses shock over failure to release undertrial prisoners

The Supreme Court today berated three States – Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh in strong words for refusing to release undertrial prisoners despite recommendation to that effect by the concerned District Legal Services Authority and Under Trial Review Committee.

A Bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta minced no words stating that the “situation cannot simply be accepted”.

This came after the Court took note of the affidavit filed . . .
