CJ wants shorter sentences *LINK*

"One school of thought is (I am just being academic in this sense) is that because prison conditions are so squalid and dehumanizing whether sentences should be shorter. You cannot punish a person twice. Each human being it must be recognized has dignity and no matter what he has done in life or how atrocious and vicious he has been in the past, he is to be treated with dignity as a human being," said Justice Sharma.
