Abstract

Retention of death penalty has become a burning issue in this country since 1980. Although in theory death penalty continues to be a supreme punishment but has to be awarded in the rarest of rare cases. The question arises where the supremacy lies if the punishment cannot be awarded in 99% cases. Even the doctrine of rarest of rare cases has been attacked on various grounds from time to time. The perception of the judges is also not uniform in this regard. This paper critically examines the developments towards the abolition of death penalty and the application of the doctrine of rarest of rare cases.

Keywords

Abolition of Death penalty, Doctrine of Rarest of rare cases, Supreme punishment, Perception of the judges.
