Updated: 5 months ago | PDF
This report documents and examines the challenges faced by foreign national prisoners (FNPs) in India. While prisoners, in general, are vulnerable due to asymmetrical power dynamics and the closed nature of places of detention, this report is an effort to understand the special vulnerability of foreign nationals stemming from their non-Indian nationality or statelessness. The analysis is anchored by the data collected from 22 states and four Union Territories through Right to Information requests filed by CHRI to heads of all 36 state prison departments across the country.
