INTRODUCTION OF INDIAN PENAL CODE:
In the uncivilized society no person was said to be safe from attacks to his person or property by any other person. The person attacked either succumbed or over-powered his opponent. A tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye, a life for a life was the rule of law. With the advancement of time, the injured person agreed to accept compensation, instead of killing his adversary. For a long time the function of settling the terms remained with the parties themselves, but gradually this function came to be performed by the State.
In India the criminal jurisprudence came into existence from the time of Manu. Manu has recognized assault, theft, robbery, false evidence, slender, criminal breach of trust, cheating, adultary and rape. The king protected his subjects in return owed him allegiance and paid him revenue. The king administered justice himself, if unable due to certain circumstances, the matter was entrusted to a judge. If a criminal was fined, the fine went to the king's treasury and was not given as compensation to the injured party.
