Abstract

Murder and Culpable Homicide are similar to each other, but they are not identical to each other. Section 299 deals with Culpable Homicide and Section 300 explain the concept of Murder. There is a very thin difference between Murder and Culpable Homicide. It becomes difficult to differentiate between them because both concepts represent “The killing of death”. Murder defines that the intentionally killing of a human being which in itself is sufficient to cause the death of a person whereas Culpable Homicide explains that the act is done with the intention of causing death which is likely to cause the death of a person. It is a common understanding that “Every Murder is Culpable Homicide but all Culpable Homicide are not Murder”. In other words, we can say that murder is a part of culpable homicide i.e. Culpable Homicide is regarded as a genus whereas Murder is species.
