The Indian judge is the Ombudsman against infringements of fundamental rights inherent
in the constitution in addition to the only protective arms and constitution found
worldwide. For the security of the civil rights of prisoners, legal consideration is essential
in our culture. The Supreme Court of India (SCI) is truly a beacon of the rights against
torture. The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India is the protector of the Constitution of India,
and Article 21 of the Constitution of India is the guiding principle for the protection of the
life and liberty of an individual. This paper examines the critical decisions taken by the
Indian higher justice system on how the Indian judiciary has developed its values and new
tactics in ensuring human rights for prisoners. It also discusses prisoners' human dignity,
civil rights status, and Human Rights law.
