The present work is the Fifth Edition of O.P. Srivastava’s ‘Apradhik Vidhi Ke Sidhant’ (Principles of Criminal Law) whose revising author is Dr. Ram Naresh Chaudhary who has successfully attempted to present the pros and cons of the subject matter in various chapters. Several important points have been discussed in detail starting from the historical background to the concept of ‘private defence’ and similarities among important Sections with examples have been thoroughly explained so that the readers can easily understand the scope and the difference between the closely related Sections.; for instance, the similarity between Section 34 & Section 120-a; Section 120-b & Section 107. Apart from explaining the Sections pertaining to the Indian Penal Code along with usually explaining the Sections of the IPC, the book’s usefulness has been expanded by including important and necessary legal decisions.
‘Index of Cases’ has been given in English so as to reach any topic of the subject with ease through any topic. The language of the book is very simple. It is not only hoped but it is strongly believed that this new edition of this completely updated book will be liked by you.
