Abstract:
This research examines the nature and scope of the Constitutional guarantees relating to criminal justice administration in five South Asian neighbouring States, namely, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal, and compares those guarantees with the corresponding guarantees of the European Convention on Human Rights in order to, (i) determine whether the Constitutional guarantees relating to criminal justice administration in the five South-Asian neighbouring States are, in comparison with the corresponding rights of the European Convention of Human Rights, of acceptable international standard, (ii) suggest measures, if any, the South-Asian States should adopt in order to raise the present level of Constitutional protection afforded to the persons accused or suspected of committing offences, and (iii) to ascertain whether there exists a common Constitutional practice in the South-Asian region among the neighbouring States with regard to the rights relating to criminal justice administration.
