In recent years, the issue of police encounters over the judiciary has been a matter of increasing concern in India. While there are various reasons behind this trend, such as a lack of faith in the judicial system and media’s role in shaping public perceptions, the issue is highly complex and multi-faceted. Extrajudicial killings are illegal and violate human rights, and there is a risk that encounters can be used to target innocent people or settle personal and political scores. Therefore, it is essential to address the underlying issues in the legal system and work towards strengthening it so that it can deliver justice in a fair, timely, and effective manner. Only by working together can we create a society that is just and equitable for all its citizens.
