  • INDIA HUMAN RIGHTS 2005
  • India Human Rights Report 2006 covering the events from 1 January to 31 December 2005 reports about human rights violations in 27 States of India. India faces many human rights challenges from the lack of access to justice from judiciary and quasi-judicial bodies like National Human Rights Commission to Kangaroo justice delivered by the cultural courts, the Panchayats, or socalled People's Court, the Jana Adalats, of the Maoists. The list of human rights violations is long arbitrary arrest, detention, torture, custodial death, disproportionate use of fire-arms, communal riots, rape, mis-use of national security laws, atrocities against the Adivasis and Dalits, violations of the prisoners rights etc. Sovereign immunity of the State and impunity to the security forces create a vicious cycle of human rights violations in India.
