Aggrieved over the close links between the political class and the police, Chief Justice of India NV Ramana hit out at officers who wanted to be in the good books of the ruling party and misused the rule of law.
The court observed that the affidavits of the officers are not satisfactory. It seems that both the bank and the police are not serious. Proper efforts were not made to prevent fraud. They are told that the fraud took place from a remote area. Even the police are afraid to go to the Naxal area.
"The threat to human rights and bodily integrity are the highest in Police Station", the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said at an event organized by the National Legal Services Authority of India (NALSA) on Sunday. He also inaugurated the legal aid app related to legal services.

The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has expressed deep concern on the illegal and brazen exercise of brute power by the police and action taken by them contrary to law against members of the legal fraternity.
