Description
An attempt has been made in this treatise to apprise the readers of the new development in the criminal law challenging the peace, Tranquility and security of humanity as a result of the vast impact of industrialization, globalization and terrorism on our colonial administration of criminal justice governed by the Indian Penal Code enacted by the British more than hundred fifty-five years ago in 1860, which is based on the laws that are arbitrary and operate to the disadvantage of the poor, the week and the handicapped. The book starts with the Introduction explaining the basic concept, tenets, philosophy, origin and development of criminal law, aims, objects and principles of criminal jurisprudence. The author briefly outlines the fundamentals of crime and criminal law, principles of criminal liability, mens rea, vicarious and strict liability and discusses elaborately every type of punishable offences including offences relating to human body. Crime against women, bride-burning and dowry related offences, suicide, torture and sexual offences relating to rape, custodial rape, custodial violence, unnatural offences and sexual harassment at work place etc., in detail. The question of desirability of death sentences for a rapist has been critically examined and evaluated in the Indian and American context. An account of the magnitude and incidence of crime as depicted in the National Crime Record Bureau and the Reports of the Amnesty International relation to death penalty, exceptions  including juveniles, offenders, Santhanam Committee and the Malimath Committee have been given and explained at length to keep the readers abreast with the recent development in criminal jurisprudence.
