Indian testicle attack 'is murder'
The Indian Supreme Court has ruled that anyone who inflicts fatal injuries to the testicles should face first-degree murder charges.
The ruling was handed down in a case in which a man had kneed another in the testicles, killing him instantly.
The attacker had been convicted in a lower court on the lesser charge of culpable homicide, not amounting to murder.
The Supreme Court said that if a person, with an intention to kill, fatally injured another in "the private parts", the accused would be charged with murder.
So could I have inflicted a fatal nad injury before hand and gotten away with it?? If it was in self-defence like that bold quote suggests it should have been tried as manslaughter; then again the article doesn't really say why the kneeing occurred. Its pretty sketchy on the whole incident but the picture at the top of the page is great.
