Right Against Self Incrimination

Charu Trivedi, Assistant Professor of Law, NRI Group of Institutions, Bhopal (M.P)


The term ‘Self-incrimination’ means making statements or producing evidence by a person against himself which tends to prove that he is guilty of crime. The Constitution, the procedural laws and the International Covenants provide protection in this respect to the accused under different provisions. The development in the field of technology has benefitted crime detection in India but adversely affected the basic right against self-incrimination of the accused. This paper discusses the position of right against self –incrimination in India in comparison to its International position. It also includes the development of the technology in this field and the relevant cases.
