MCNAUGHTON'S CASE AND LAW:

In 1843, McNaughton shot and  killed Sir Robert Peel's secretary Edward -Drymmond.  It was  shown  that McNaughton suffered from a number of  delusions of persecution and  that killing had been inspired by  these delusions, and the judge directed the  jury  to find him not guilty. After lot of  a debate in  the House of Lords  the famous McNaughton's  Rules were formulated  in England. India also followed the rules dealing with criminal responsibility. McNaughton's rules have been adopted  by  section 84 of  Indian Penal Code of  1860 states that "Nothing is an offense which is done by  a  person who, at the time of  doing it by  reason of unsoundness of mind, was incapable of  knowing the nature of  the act or that what he is doing was either wrong or contrary  to  law."
