Mangaluru, Jun 20: "The police have no right to arrest individuals or take them away for interrogation in any case without serving notices on the individuals concerned or family members. If the police transgress this rule, that would be treated as violation of human rights," said chairperson of Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC), Meera Saxena.

She was speaking after inaugurating a workshop organized in the office of the city police commissioner here on Monday June 19 under the aegis of KSHRC, police department, Global Concerns India, Academy of Gandhian Studies, as well as Justice and Care, on the subjects of human rights, gender equality and human trafficking for the police personnel.

Saxena advised police personnel never to barge into houses at night and arrest people without serving them notices, and resort to inhuman torture during interrogation. "This clearly violates law. If the individual suffers from ill health on account of this torture, it will have adverse impact on the department. One should solve cases by staying within the limits of law. Although many a time police are unable to deal problems emotionally or on humanitarian grounds, they should never forget to abide by duty consciousness and law," she advised.

She encouraged people to bring to the notice of the commission about cases of human rights violation so that help can be extended to the people facing injustice. She assured that the identity of such informants will be kept a secret. "Even when the information given is found to be false, we do not harm the informants," she assured. She also told the police that they should desist from negotiating a deal between warring parties, asserting that people who have faced injustice in the eyes of law should get justice. She added that in tune with the demand about providing human rights information to children, from next year onward, entire information on human rights would be provided to children through curriculum.

    Dear Policemen please remember Human Rights of the Criminals. Before You arrest a thief,serve a notice to Him warning that He will be arrested. Also tell Him that by the time the Notice is prepared, he has time to fly to Gulf.
    Also warn the Rowdy sheeter that Police Commissioner is typing a notice. So until then He has time to melt the sword He will be Using or Used.
    Also You Common Citizen, Your Human right will not be a matter of Human rights. You will not get Human Rights notice to file a case.
    These are the reason so many criminals are roaming the streets of India. Rapist should send a notice to innocent Person saying that Human rights are adored before rape incident takes place.
    Police man please remember not to arrest the rapist without notice ,until then Rapist will get another victim for Policeman to prepare one more notice. I cannot stop laughing !!!

    Sachidananda Shetre,
    Well said.
    Why the Human Rights Commission is not bothered about the 'human rights' of the victims?
    They blow their trumpets for juvenile rapists, adult criminals facing death row, Kashmiri jihadis, JNU anti nationals etc.etc only!!

    Sachidanand Shetty, Mundkur/Dubai, You are not aware about the basic point. Human Rights activists/commission not for victims rights. They are working only for Criminals, terrorists, rapits, naxalites ......etc. As per them, naxalites can kill 100 people/police, terrorists can kill people/army, rapists can rape & murder. But Police/ military persons no right to kill naxalites/ terrorists, at least for self defense!!!!!!!!!. And law of land can't hang the deadly terrorists, criminals. If you understand the basic point, there is no confusion.

    Meera Saxena should read the section 41,42,43 and 44 of CRPC code of Crminal procedure 1973, again before giving false statements. She should not use 'human rights' threat on police who perform their duties.
    She can keep her human rights outside Indian borders.
