In view of the corona pandemic in india and non availibilty of proper medicare, the cases of the undertrials must be reviewed by the review committies so as to facilitate the process of release of these prisoners.
In view of the fact the regular trials are haulted because of the corona pandemic which is likely to result in non conclusion of criminal trials in the near future and accordingly delay in trials leads to delay in justice amounts to the denial of justice .
