    Reddy also raised concerns about three additional criminal law bills that propose draconian provisions. These bills aim to replace the Indian Penal Code, Criminal Procedure Code, and Indian Evidence Act with new versions. Reddy warned that increasing police custody from 15 days to 90 days could lead to rampant police torture and that crucial safeguards like mandatory medical examinations and details of arrest could be removed.
