that she signing all the right films in her career and Salman Khan is guiding her through it all Every time Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan come together there are various stories building up but it is only fair that it does because their equation truly gives us “relationship-break-up-friendship” goals without a doubt Both of them will be seen together in Tiger Zinda Hai after a really long time We recently learnt that Katrina is yet again seeking guidance from Salman about her career and the choices of films she is making And of course Salman being Salman is extending full support to his ex-flame and very good friend Kat Salman is not called lion-hearted without a reason even after their break-up he continued to care for Katrina when she was going through her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor And ever since Katrina has been spotted at the Khan family gatherings quite often Our sources tell us “It is quite nice to see both of them so comfortable with each other She (Katrina) even attended Salman’s song shoot wrap-up party on the sets of Tubelight and both of them had a gala time with the team” While many might be contemplating that the ex-couple is getting back we would only like to say that we are just happy that they have let go of their frictions and have made such a strong comeback Salman and Katrina will be teaming up for the sequel of Ek Tha Tiger titled Tiger Zinda Hai and we are all excited already The film is scheduled to release on December 22 2017 For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Vrinda Bhandari | Updated: September 25 2014 12:14 pm Transparency International found that 62 per cent people reported paying bribes during their interactions with the police Related News In a recent landmark order in Bhim Singh vs Union of India the Supreme Court directed the fast-tracking of criminal cases and the release of undertrial prisoners who had completed at least half their maximum prison term pursuant to Section 436A of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) Bringing attention to the plight of those languishing in prison while awaiting trial the court’s order coincides with the Narendra Modi government’s mandate to decongest prisons by releasing undertrials While laudable these measures reiterate previous judicial directives (SC Legal Aid Committee vs UoI; Rama Murthy vs State of Karnataka) and Law Commission reports (78th and 239th) Releasing undertrials is a short-term solution; as explained below it does not address the underlying causes for the high proportion of undertrials in India Pre-trial detention is a real problem More than 66 per cent of India’s prisoners are undertrials which is over twice the global average of 32 per cent Of these 254857 undertrials more than 2000 have been in prison for over five years Overburdened by the flood of arrestees (nearly 75 lakh were arrested in 2012 according to the National Crime Records Bureau) prisons have experienced an increase in the number of undertrials and overcrowding The average occupancy rate in India’s prisons is 1122 per cent with the situation particularly dire in states such as Chhattisgarh (2526 per cent) and Delhi (1938 per cent) Unfortunately reforms have favoured measurable quick fixes — fast-track courts and greater judge-population/ police-population ratios — without attempting to understand the high incidence of pre-trial detention This can be explained by first criminal justice functionaries (police prosecutors judges and prison officials) who are often overworked understaffed and underpaid; second the socio-economic profile of the undertrials which affects their ability to post bail; and finally an ineffective legal aid system First India has one of the lowest police-population ratios of 1311 officers per 100000 population (against the UN norms of 222) Corruption is also an endemic problem; in 2013 Transparency International found that 62 per cent people reported paying bribes during their interactions with the police Misaligned incentives to arrest persons (for example to demonstrate the progress of investigations) have resulted in 60 per cent of all arrests being “unnecessary or unjustified” Prosecutors lack basic facilities such as access to legal databases research and administrative assistants The Delhi High Court in a March 2014 order noted that prosecutors’ laptop allowances exclude payment for internet facilities and legal databases; they do not have exclusive office space in courts and lose files because of insufficient file space As the court observed “one of the predominant cause(s) for delay in disposal of criminal case is due to shortage of public prosecutors” India has around 15 judges per million population despite the 2002 Supreme Court order in All India Judges’ Association directing an increase to 50 judges per million by 2007 But the bigger problem is the backlog of more than three crore cases with the SC itself currently hearing 64000 cases Delays in the conclusion of trials often result in pre-trial detention being used a punitive measure causing denial of bail They also spawn informal justice measures such as plea-bargaining or jail adalats where fewer procedural safeguards nudge the accused to plead guilty to escape detention in lieu of the time already served Prison officials are one of the most important and often the most neglected part of the criminal justice system They regularly review the legal status of undertrials to determine whether they have spent enough time in custody to warrant release under Section 436A Unfortunately on average only 663 per cent of the sanctioned posts are filled with Bihar having only 211 per cent of the sanctioned prison official strength Second the inability to post bail arises partly due to the profile of undertrials Some two-thirds are SCs/ STs/ OBCs and three-fourths are illiterate or have studied till below Class X Low education levels and economic activity mean lower incomes making it harder to afford bail Third the ineffectiveness of the existing legal aid system prevents these undertrials from being able to access statutory and constitutionally guaranteed legal aid Poverty and low legal literacy makes many undertrials ignorant about the benefits afforded by Section 436A and their right to legal aid Further inadequate coordination among the legal services authorities and prison officials results in a failure to identify those requiring legal aid What are the solutions Unfortunately there are no easy answers Simply sanctioning an increase in the judge-population ratio does not account for the existing reality of 4564 judicial vacancies Nor does it consider the work these criminal justice functionaries are doing; police officers often spend their time on law and order and VIP security instead of criminal investigation Thus there are three officers for every “protected person” but only one officer for 761 common citizens Similarly fast-track courts do not resolve the underlying structural problems since they function within the same procedural framework as regular courts Reforms should be oriented towards bringing criminal justice functionaries together and starting a conversation Instead of merely announcing new initiatives emphasis should be on ensuring the implementation of existing provisions such as regularising the functioning of the Undertrial and Periodic Review Committees Finally efforts should focus on improving data collection and digitisation and on mapping the existing reform landscape to prevent duplication of work The SC order and the government decision are steps in the right direction Nevertheless a lot more needs to be done to mainstream the prison reform
