Gangtok: The Sikkim Government today tabled a bill in the assembly seeking to amend a provision of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) to increase the judicial remand of under trial prisoners to 30 days from the existing 15 days at a time.

To this effect, Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling in his capacity as home minister tabled the Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Bill proposing amendment to the section 167 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.

The increase in one-time period of judicial remand will help the administration in several ways, the chief minister said.
