The day to day life of the people is affected by the courts, the police and other agencies.
But people are generally not aware about the various aspects of courts, about the criminal justice system, about the procedure being followed in criminal courts, about the various restrictions on the exercise of powers by the police and the duties of the police officers, and so on.
The Fundamental Rights in Indian constitution acts as a guarantee that all Indian citizens can and will live their lifes in peace as long as they live in Indian democracy.
They include individual rigts common to most liberal democracies, such as equality before the law, freddom of speech and expression, freedom of association and peaceful assembly.
They are also not aware about their rights when they are accused of an offence.
It is because of this lack of knowledge of the working of the system that the people are taken for a ride and are unnecessarily harassed and tortured at the hands of the prosecuting agencies.
