India: Who Is Being Sentenced to Death?

  • Events
  • 26 Apr 2017

On 11th May 2017, we will be hosting a talk by Neetika Vishwanath and Rahul Raman, Centre on the Death Penalty at the National Law University, Delhi.

In an unprecedented effort lasting over three years, the Centre on the Death Penalty at the National Law University, Delhi has documented the socio-economic profile of India’s death row prisoners and also mapped their interaction with the criminal justice system.

The Death Penalty India Report published in May 2016 provides in-depth insights into various facets of the death penalty in India based on extensive access to all prisoners sentenced to death in India and their families. While discussing discrimination, custodial torture, inadequate representation, prison conditions and severe alienation from the legal system in the context of India’s experience with the death penalty, Neetika Vishwanath and Rahul Raman will also reflect on the experience of the Centre on the Death Penalty in providing pro bono legal representation to over 60 death row prisoners in the last two years.
