Section 302 of the IPC provides for punishement of murder. According to the Section, anyone who commits the crime of murder shall be punished with death, or life imprisonment, and fine. Thus, since murder is a serious and grave crime, only the most serious punishments that are allowed in India i.e. life imprisonment and death, are ordered to be given to the offender.
