Death sentences of convicts are executed only by"hanging till death".The Supreme Court has raised a query in this context, directed the central government to find another method to execute the death sentence.
The Indian philosophy is that every human being is assured dignity constitutionally and is maintained too. The Central government replied that even some fatal injections fail, may not kill the person. The Supreme court said that science has advanced to that extent, it may be worth trying to find a painless sudden death as an alternative to hanging till death.
The Central government has replied that there is no alternative to hanging till death. However, it will try to find out an alternative.
