Use of torture or third-degree methods at any stage of the
interrogation is unethical, inhuman, barbarous and illegal. There is
no substitute for evidence collected against the suspect, and any
attempt to substitute evidence by the use of muscle power is
degrading to the police department. The use of torture is a feudal
practice and is human rights violation as well. Interrogation is to be
conducted only after preliminary investigation about the
whereabouts of the suspects and the collection of sufficient evidence.
New techniques of interrogation and new methods of psychological
tackling of suspects should be developed. The police should be
allowed to interrogate the accused only in the presence of an
impartial third person. The children who come into conflict with the
law should be treated in accordance with international standards
on the administration of juvenile justice.
