Depression Not Unsoundness of Mind For S. 84, IPC: Supreme Court Dismisses Appeal Against Dismissal By Ex-Army man

The Supreme Court observed that ‘depression’ does not qualify as ‘unsound mind’ for the purpose of entitling one to the defence under Section 84, IPC. The bench of Justices Rohinton Nariman, Navin Sinha and Krishna Murari was hearing an appeal against a 2018 order of dismissal passed by the Armed Forces Tribunal, Regional Bench, Lucknow. “The question is whether depression can be regarded as unsoundness of mind”, advanced the counsel for the appellant.
