Gujarat Control of Terrorism and Organised Crime (GCTOC) Bill

Gujarat Control of Terrorism and Organised Crime (GCTOC) Bill
•The Bill, earlier named as the Gujarat Control of Organised Crime Bill, failed to get the presidential nod thrice since 2004. Now, Sixteen years after the first version of it was passed by the Gujarat Assembly, the Gujarat GCTOC has finally become law.
•The Bill provides for admissibility of evidence collected through interception of mobile calls of an accused or through confessions made before an investigating officer, in a court of law.
•Clause 16, which makes confessions before police officers admissible in court.
•The bill empowers police to tap telephonic conversations and submit them in court as evidence.
•It extends period of probe from stipulated 90 days to 180 days before filing of charge sheet.
【 Overall it gives more power of investigation to government and weak the Fundamental Rights of accused!】
