Mentor’s comment-
  • https://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/columns/supreme-court-death-penalty-criminal-justice-7974153/
  • In the intro, mention the Supreme Court, in Manoj & others v. State of MP, embarked on a significant attempt to reform the administration of the death penalty.
  • In the body, mention the issues such as the crime-centric approach, breaching the framework laid down in the Bachan Singh case, unprincipled sentencing, arbitrariness and worrying levels of subjectivity. In the next part mention the steps taken by the Supreme Court such as the need to meet the procedural threshold, and recognizing the reformation as integral to the criminal justice system.
  • Conclude by mentioning that implementation remains the challenge and the Supreme Court will have to provide a rigorous normative basis for consideration of these factors.
