Since ancient time victim of crime were being forgotten man of Criminal Justice System. At that time focus was only criminal and crime rather than on victim. In the beginning of the twentieth century, it was observed that the status of victim in the Criminal Justice System was very worse. Victim role was restricted only reporting to the Police about the crime and there were very few legislative provisions available for compensation to victims. The position of the victim of crime remain almost in dark for centuries, but in last three decades rights of victim has emerged as key factor in criminal justice system and victim today are accepted as a worthy person in proceedings of law and it attracts attention from all nations across the world. Intellectual and Government are now more concern for victim of crime and his problem’s remedy are of great concern today.
