On 18th September, 2019, School of Law conducted a guest lecture on the theme “Investigation and Prosecution of Crimes in India”. The Ex DGP of Bihar, Dr. D.N. Gautam was the keynote speaker for the event. His general approach to elaborate the theme made the concept easy for the first year undergraduate student to comprehend. He discussed the adversarial model of justice followed in India in his lecture and pointed out that fair trial is the goal and the prosecutors need to prove the case beyond reasonable doubts. Failure of the prosecutors to prove cases beyond reasonable doubt leads to the benefit of doubt to the accused, which leads to acquittals. The role of prosecutors in India is very significant since more acquittals can encourage criminal activities in the future and may lead to a rise in the crime rate. After this great lecture and interactive session, Dr. Ramesh Kumar, Head of Department, School of Law Delhi- NCR campus presented a gift to Dr. D.N. Gautam as a token of gratitude.
