    Abstract:
    It is aptly said by William Gladstone that Justice delayed is Justice denied.’ Before the Hussainara Khatoon case, there was no light on the condition of prisoners and brutal violation of their rights and liberties. Every person is entitled to Art. 21 related to the right to life and liberties, this includes granting them full opportunity to prove their innocence. With the case of Hussainara Khatoon, awareness of free legal aid for poorer sections of society and the antiquated and unsatisfactory bail system is impossible to fulfill for poor sections. It reflects and records a slow and antiquated legal system that prevents a person to access its basic reedom and liberties.It also highlights the need of vigilance among citizens regarding sociolegal issues as Vigilantibus Non Dormientibus Jura Subveniun.This paper summarises the case Hussainara Khatoon & Others (I) v. Home Secretary, State of Bihar, and highlights its major attributes and its significance in legal history.
