Criminal cases will concern organized crime as well as what is categorized as criminal acts against underprivileged groups, such as women, scheduled castes and tribes, or former “criminal tribes” -as the Indian penal code has progressively enlarged the notion of “crime” so as to include a number of social discriminations. Cases will be studied trying to combine court observation, archivial research, and discussion with the various protagonist of the trialOne among the questions that will be investigated relates to what the Common law terminology calls “hostile witness”. The disparity between legal legislation and its actual implementation may produce forms of resistance on the part of the population to the state’s effort to implement legality. It often happens that the prosecutor’s witnesses, who initially testify against the accused when the case is registered by the police, deny or strongly tone down their accusations once questioned by the judge. The problem posed by these “hostile witnesses” is an everyday situation in Indian Courts. It is not necessarily the consequence of political pressure or corruption (though it can well be the case), and often results from village or family dynamics which may interfere with the trial.A report published by the National Crime Records Bureau compared the crime rates of 1953 and 2006. The report noted that burglary (known as house-breaking in India) declined over a period of 53 years by 79.84% (from 147,379, a rate of 39.3/100,000 in 1953 to 91,666, a rate of 7.9/100,000 in 2006), murder has increased by 7.39% (from 9,803, a rate of 2.61 in 1953 to 32,481, a rate of 2.81/100,000 in 2006). Kidnapping has increased by 47.80% (from 5,261, a rate of 1.40/100,000 in 1953 to 23,991, a rate of 2.07/100,000 in 2006), robbery has declined by 28.85% (from 8,407, rate of 2.24/100,000 in 1953 to 18,456, rate of 18,456 in 2006) and riots have declined by 10.58% (from 20,529, a rate of 5.47/100,000 in 1953 to 56,641, a rate of 4.90/100,000 in 2006). In 2006, 5,102,460 cognisable crimes were committed including 1,878,293 Indian Penal Code (IPC) crimes and 3,224,167 Special & Local Laws (SLL) crimes, with an increase of 1.5% over 2005 (50,26,337). IPC crime rate in 2006 was 167.7 compared to 165.3 in 2005 showing an increase of 1.5% in 2006 over 2005. SLL crime rate in 2006 was 287.9 compared to 290.5 in 2005 showing a decline of 0.9% in 2006 over 2005.
