Improve the abysmal conviction rates in Odisha, currently at 11%

This petition made change with 10 supporters!


As per data compiled by National Crime Record Bureau, out of 100 cases 89 cases results in acquittal in Odisha. Or in other words conviction rate in Odisha is mere 11%, which is far below the national average of 40%. Contrast that with performance of a state like Mizoram where conviction rate is 83%.

Because of such abysmal performance by Odisha police, thousands of families are deprived of justice. Many times it has been noticed that Odisha police fails to do it's job properly, concocts the charge sheet and because of poor investigation by the investigating officer the case gets dismissed in the court.

Improving the conviction rate would mean that our investigating officer, judiciary are doing their job. This would mean that there would be respect in the common citizens towards the law of the land. And it will help improve law & order, which currently is not visible since no body has any fear of anybody.
