Abstract

One of the basic tenets of the Criminal culpability in any legal system at present today is the mens rea requirement standard which symbolizes a conscious self-control on the criminal conduct of a person. And that is the reason why the presence of a disorder especially which is mental or psychological in nature that prompts a person to commit a crime negates the possibility of existence of mens rea. As a result, a defense like that of Insanity exists in Indian criminal law. In this light, there have been ceaseless debates and attempts to bring the two most debated syndromes of criminal behaviour under the umbrella of criminal defences. One being the Battered Woman Syndrome which is psychological in nature and applicable to woman; and the other being XYY Supermale abnormality which is biological in nature and is applicable to men. The aim of this report is to delve deep into the debate and examine if and whether these syndromes can be projected as defences under Indian criminal law and in what circumstances.

Key Words

Battered Women Syndrome, XXY Supermale, Criminal Behaviour, Defenses etc.
