ABSTRACT

Throughout the present research study of “Custodial Atrocities and the status of human rights: An analytical study with reference to women in the state of Gujarat.” we have seen and witnessed what would have been the final statutory provisions/documents for the complete elimination of all forms of atrocities against women in custody. If the said statutes/documents for the protection, safety and security of human rights of people in prison were interpreted and applied in accordanc e with the procedures established by law i.e. equality before the law and the equal protection of the law a really healthy society would have emerged.
