Abstract


ABSTRACT
In Pakistan, where violations have surpassed all levels of toluene, little attention has been paid to systematically study and address the issue. Some of violations such as forced disappearances even threaten the integrity of the state of Pakistan. Torture, custodial deaths, extra-judicial killings, cruel and inhume treatment of the accused, custodial rape, illegal detention, detention longer than permitted by law are some the heinous practices which have eroded the public confidence in pole and law enforcement mechanisms of state. This research aims at unearthing the reasons behind human rights violations of accused from police and tends to look into the structural and operational flaws inside police department to recommend useful reforms. Since satisfactory research has been conducted while keeping in view the victim side of the problem, the research tends to take into its account perceptions of police officials to comprehend the hidden dimensions of the problem. Researchers have interviewed police officials of various rank and files to collect primary data to reach pragmatic conclusions. Recruitment, training, and on-job experiences have been ascertained to dig up the compelling reasons behind such atrocities.
