The District and Session judge also said that there is no drastic change in the new law but a modification and streamlining of the old law where features like community service are incorporated, where evidence can be obtained from electronic media like WhatsApp which, he said, had immensely given power to the police in Criminal matters.

The recently enacted three new criminal laws are Bharariya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksa Sanhita (BNSS) and Bharatiya Sakshy Adhinlyam (BSA) which came into effect on July 1, 2024, replacing Indian Penal Court (IPC), Code of Criminals Procedures (CrPC) and Indian Evidence Act.
