    Experts from law and law enforcement agencies in Hyderabad discussed the new criminal laws passed by Parliament: ‘Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita-2023, Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita-2023, and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam-2023′. They believe these laws are a step towards decolonizing outdated British-era laws.

Changes include allowing victims to file FIRs at any police station, punishment for mob lynching, and community service as punishment for minor crimes. These changes are expected to make the criminal justice system more transparent.
