About the seminar

Crimes are universal phenomena, which have the capacity of destabilizing the equilibrium of the society. Criminal wrongs cause irreparable damage to an individual and to the society at large. As the society is developing, criminal acts are also emerging with new forms. Apart from the traditional crimes, new types of criminal conducts have been experienced by the victims. There is a steep rise of incidents of crimes against women are also increasing.

India is known for its justice since times immemorial. Judiciary is independent and the penal philosophy in India has accepted the concept of prevention of crime and rehabilitation of criminals, which have been reiterated by many judgments of the Supreme Court. It is the state which undertakes the responsibility to prosecute and punish the offenders and by treating the victims as mere witness.
