Investigating agencies biased in favour of Modi, says American report
It is futher said in this report that other problems of human rights include disappearance of persons, bad conditions in jails, arrest or keeping in custody according to the whims of police and security agencies, and imprisonment for long periods before trial or hearing of cases. It further says that courts are over-burdened, cases are kept pending for long periods and consequently arrested persons, many of them on suspicions only, also are kept in prisons for long, resulting in excessive delay, injustice and even denial of justice. The report also says that authorities violate rights of citizens, including fundamental rights.
