The study, entitled,  Lethal Lottery: The Death Penalty in India, A study of Supreme Court judgments in death penalty cases 1950-2006examines the essential arbitrariness in the application of the death penalty in India and exposes a judicial system that has failed to meet international standards of fairness.
One of the main authors of this report is ADPAN member from India, lawyer, Bikram Jeet Batra.
