Abstract: The nexus between crime and politics in India has been a deep rooted one, since the genesis of the country. This notion was confirmed in the Vohra Committee Report in 1993, which found out a definitive link of criminal networks with bureaucrats, politicians and media persons. The nexus has only deepened ever since and perhaps become more pronounced. In 2002, the report of the National Commission to Review the Working of the Constitution (NCRWC) further disclosed that criminals were now seeking direct access to power by becoming legislators and ministers themselves.
