Over 67 per cent of Indian prisoners are under-trials, majority of them under the age of 30. Many are locked up before investigations are over, and several of them end up spending years in jail. One is supposed to be innocent till proven guilty, but that's not how it works out for lakhs of people. Justice delayed here is truly justice denied.
