A pioneering work in a highly topical subject, Chaff and Grain by Vivek Sood delves into the malfunctions of the criminal justice system in India. The Supreme Court has gone to the extent of saying that in our criminal justice system the judge presiding over a trial decides on the basis of his sixth sense as to what must have happened during the incident and then lays his trust on God and good luck for coming to the ‘right’ conclusion. This hard-hitting take on the criminal justice system is further delved into by the author through the prism of how the innocent get punished, the misuse of the power of arrest by the police, unjustified denial of bail, manipulated investigations and fake encounters. Apart from making out a case for imperative reforms, the author has redefined ‘hate speech’ and ‘sedition’, which are much in the news, as offences for legislators and policymakers. The book also deals with some of the most controversial criminal cases that hit the headlines—Aarushi Talwar, Jessica Lal, Priyadarshini Mattoo, Telgi fake stamp paper scam and the Nirbhaya rape—making it a riveting read
