Yes it is abetment by conspiracy. It reflects an agreement a meeting of minds - a common intention to murder.

1. IT DOES amount to "abetment to murder". However this would be applicable only in Bollywood Courts, located at Film-City (Mumbai).


2. OF THE LEGAL COURSE, it would amount to wishful angered thinking and not an evidential motive. General public, routinely keep saying such things about Politicians and Religiious leaders (eg. all politicians should be lined-up and shot) AND (eg. that such an such Swami has sacrificed childrens for his black magic rituals).

The words followed by action comes in the definitions if abatement and punishable as per provisions of IPC. A B and entire crowd is liable but the amount of punishment may be different person to person.

My Perceptions :


1. The lawful criteria for "ABETMENT" (u/s 107 IPC) can be full-filled, chiefly by three components :
a) Instigation
b) Conspiracy
c) Intention


All three above are inter-linked together.
a) "Instigation" is not on the spur of the moment and is pre-planned (i.e. conspiracy) with specific intention.
b) "Conspiracy" is between two pre-determined persons, with specific intention and does not require instigation
c) "Intention" is by a master-mind, who conspires with other like-minded persons (abetors) to join him


In the original question by the querist, the general un-planned .AND. un-intended words uttered in anger is on the "Spur of the moment" by an unknown-person, hence there is no component of a) Instigation .PLUS. b) Conspiracy .PLUS. c) Intention, SINCE an unknown person cannot abet with the crowd of other unknown persons, hence the criteria of conspiracy with common intention to abet cannot be fulfilled.


Conclusively, the un-planned violent action of the unknown-persons-of-the-crowd cannot be termed as Abetment with each other, but leaves ample scope under other sections of IPC.


E.& O.E.
