In India homicides are classified into murder, culpable homicide not amounting to murder and negligent homicide. Most of the criminal scholars, jurists and law students consider culpable homicide not amounting to murder and manslaughter to be the same. This is a great misconception, as, though manslaughter and culpable homicide not amounting to murder have many accessories and characteristics in common differ on intricate grounds. Manslaughter has much a broader horizon when compared to culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
