Abstract

As a principle, three organs of a state namely the executive, the legislature and the judiciary are entrusted to perform distinct functions for proper administration of a country. The law enforcing agencies are meant to maintain law and order situation of the country whereas the administration of justice is vested in the judicial system of the country. If any offense is committed by someone, he/she shall be arrested by the law enforcing agencies and prosecuted by the court of law. But in recent times extra-judicial killings by law enforcing agencies deprives an accused form getting the shelter of courts of law. Which violates the basic principle of separation of power. These undue interventions by law enforcing agencies are posing threat to the public confidence in the independent judiciary.
