Criminal Law

Even though Pakistan’s criminal code is somewhat out of date, it tends to cover all elements that do qualify as crimes. Understanding Pakistan’s sociocultural events is necessary in order to comprehend the country’s criminal code. When Pakistan and India were both British colonies, the British Empire introduced the majority of the criminal law that is currently in effect in that country. Even then, care was taken to comprehend the social circumstances, and efforts were made to condition the criminal law to fit the colony’s cultural context. Because of this, after India and Pakistan gained their independence from the British Empire, they both voluntarily accepted it.

Code of Criminal Procedure (V of 1898) that was implemented in colony is still largely the prescribed criminal procedure followed by the courts in Pakistan. Similarly, the Penal Code (XLV of 1860) that was introduced in colony is still largely followed in shape of Pakistan Penal Code.
