Published By: Asian Centre for Human Rights | Published Date: November, 21 , 2011

Torture in India series have been instrumental for bringing national and international spotlight on torture in india. The Government of India regrettably has been reluctant to address torture. It drafted Prevention of Torture Bill, 2008 with only four operative clauses. The Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) responded by drafting alternate "Prevention of Torture Bill, 2009" through a national Conference held on 24-25 June 2009. this report indicates, more than four persons have been killed each day in the last decade from 2001 to 2010. The same findings in Torture in India 2008: A State of Denial made national and international news. This report shows that there has been no reduction of incidents of torture in India.
