When it comes to crime, its the Indian Penal Code which comes into action.
IPC clearly states about exceptions to any crime. These exceptions which includes Private Defense, Accident, Unsoundness, Duty bound act, etc have been allotted specified positions under the Law and deemed as Right in the eyes of Law.
