Such as obtaining the information of him or a third person or getting him to confess to such an act which can punish him etc. being intimidated or threatened on the basis of any form of discrimination, or on the basis of any discrimination when such pain or suffering is being consented or disapproved of. Dangerous torture is the biggest crime.

Most of the torture a lonely person by closing the door. It is therefore imperative for independent international and national human rights institutions to open these closed doors. This is what the United Nations Subcommittee on the Prevention of Torture does. She visits over 100 prisons and other institutions each year in collaboration with the National Prevention Systems and interacts with over 1,000 inmates, officers, law enforcement staff, and medical staff. So that the criminal is not tortured somewhere. That’s why we consider International Day in Support of Victims of Torture so that people become aware.
