Miranda Rights In Indian Criminal Law
Ramasayi Gummadi, a law student at Tamilnadu National Law University.
The paper aims to understand the nature of rights that are granted in the case of Ernesto Miranda in the US court while also mapping the importance of such rights. With that having been said, the paper looks into the existing criminal law in India in order to determine how well it has evolved to serve criminal justice placing reliance on the Constitutional Rights and the rights that so are enshrined under The Criminal Procedure Code 1973 and the Indian Evidence Act, 1872 thereby coming to a conclusion as to how the concept of Miranda Rights narrows down as we shift from the Constitution of India to the Indian Evidence Act while also taking a due consideration as to how the concept is not glorified as a whole when it comes to Indian Law. The paper also seeks to correlate the nature of Miranda Rights as a whole with that of the Rights of Accused when it comes to Indian Law.
