    Under the criminal provision of law of the code of criminal procedure it is helpful to the police in making a case against a criminal more strong if he is identified in test parade-- where criminal is to be identified by the witness amongst the line of similar standing individuals as it establishes that the witness had actually seen that same person doing the crime.

    So that is the real legal reason to hide the face of the criminals.

    It is a legal burqa system in India. Policemen are ordered to do it since it is always, a fake or an innocent one caught instead of the real one; further, it is easy to use/change persons, in the name of more arrests etc., It has a lot of utility; but they know them all, as inventors and one can

    only hazard a guess.

    In order to protect him from vigilanties. There are people that would possibly take the law into their own hands and play the role of God.

    Remember, if this person is guilty, he should pay the penalties, but until he is found guilty, he is innocent until then, and like anyone else- needs to be protected to a certain extent.

    It could be because he is embarrassed, and doesn't want anyone to know who he is.
