When you can defend yourself.

The Supreme court has decided that a person has the right of self defence which can be exercised by him in the following circumstances.

  • Right to self defence is available to only a person facing imminent danger.
  • Mere reasonable apprehension is enough to put the right of self defence into operation.
  • It is unrealistic to expect a person under assault to modulate his self defence step by step with any arithmetical exactitude.
  • Force used in self defence ought not to be wholly disproportionate than necessary for protection of self or property.
  • Person who is in imminent and reasonable danger of losing his life or limb may exercise his right of self defence inflicting any harm even extending to the death of his assailant either when the assault is attempted or directly threatened.
