“Justice seems very costly for the poor in India. A poor languishes in jail despite getting bail as he does not have the money to pay surety. There are thousands such prisoners and the government is indifferent,” executive director, People’s Vigilance Committee of Human Rights (PVCHR), Lenin Raghuvanshi told ‘The Pioneer’.
Raghuvanshi said that the poor undertrials have no access to lawyers. “Have you ever seen a rich businessman or a powerful politician languishing in jail for long ? No. They have money and can turn the case on its head and roam free while an innocent poor continues to cool his heel in jail,” he said.
