Query On Murder

Why is it that a person booked under IPC Section 302 (murder) is also booked under IPC Section 307 (attempt to murder) as well, because if indeed that person has committed murder, why the additional 'attempt to murder' charge?

Your understanding is not correct. It is not always that a person booked under IPC 302 is automatically or necessarily booked under IPC 307 as well. 307 should be satisfied against another victim than the deceased to be registered.
