Stripping undertrials for frisking is wrong, Mumbai court orders

Mumbai: A special court in the country's financial capital, Mumbai, has said that it is absolutely wrong to strip and search undertrial prisoners. The court said that this was a violation of their fundamental rights. Along with this, the court has directed the jail authorities to use scanners and technical equipment to search the prisoners. Let us tell you that Ahmed Kamal Sheikh, an accused in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts, had filed a petition against the strip search.

Justice BD Shelke, special judge for the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), passed the order on April 10. The detailed copy of the order has now been received by the officials. Ahmad Kamal Shaikh claimed that whenever he was taken back to jail after a court hearing, he was strip-searched by the prison guards. It is alleged that she was stripped naked in front of other inmates and members of the prison staff.

The petition states that this process is humiliating as well as a violation of his rights. It has also been stated in the petition that when he opposes this, he is even abused by the security personnel of the jail. However, the Mumbai jail authorities have denied these allegations and said that no such incident took place. This is just an attempt to put pressure on the jail administration.
