Right of private defence while saving another’s life

June 6, 2023

In Shive Chand v State of UP, 1995 Cr LJ 3869 (All), When the victim’s party purposefully congregated close to the house of the accused, reprimanded them, and hurt his father, it was determined that the person charged was justified in using his right to a private defence to protect his parent, and his conviction under Section 300 was overturned.

Here the right is also given to save the life of oneself as well as other no matter what relation the individual shares with another person. Even the property of oneself and of another can be protected too.
