Overview:

Principles of Criminal Law, is a well established work that presents the General Principles of Criminal Law dealing with fundamental elements of crime, viz. stages in commission of crime, constructive joint criminality, abetment and criminal conspiracy, theory of punishment and general exceptions, in a comprehensive and interesting manner.

The exposition of the basic principles of criminal law is substantiated by exhaustive discussion of important cases like the Subramanian Swamy v. A. Raja (2G and 3G Spectrum case) ; Mohd Ajmal Amir Kasab v. State of Maharashtra, etc. Some of the important topics dealt with in this edition are Extraterritorial Jurisdiction of Criminal Courts, Principles of Legality, Justification of Capital Punishment and Mode of Execution of Death Sentence.

The learned revising author has painstakingly revised and updated the current edition, incorporating the latest case law and recent statutory amendments. Model questions and answers, suggested readings and a detailed subject-index enhance the utility of the book.

This book will be immensely useful for the law students, students appearing in competitive examinations, teachers, judges, advocates and legal fraternity.

 

Gujarat Law Reporter “This book crystallises the principles of criminal law by explaining the fundamentals, and various aspects of the principles, put together topic-wise with relevant sections. For better utility of the book, decisions of the Supreme Court as well as High Courts are described in detail wherever felt necessary, bringing the edition up-to-date”
