The Indian Penal Code's Section 300 (3) has always been a particularly intriguing clause. It is also interesting to observe how the logic for using this part in murder cases has evolved. The law was largely clarified on this issue following the Virsa Singh case in 1958, which established a precedent that was ascertain the circumstances surrounding Virsa Singh's case, assess them, and examine the circumstances and method that courts will use to apply the ruling in this case in subsequent judgements. This section has also given consideration to the purpose criterion.
