SECTION 38 IPC : People involved in criminal activity may commit a variety of offenses. When multiple people are involved in the commission of a crime, they may each be guilty of a separate offense as a result of the crime. Illustration When A attacks Z, it is with such egregious provocation that Z’s death is simply culpable homicide and not murder. B helps A kill Z because he has a vendetta against Z and wants to kill him but wasn’t the target of the provocation. In this case, even though A and B both participated in the act that led to Z’s death, B is guilty of murder but A is solely accountable for culpable homicide.
