Indian Penal Code (IPC, Hindi: भारतीय दण्ड संहिता) is the main criminal code of India. It was drafted in 1860. In the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the IPC is known as Ranbir Penal Code (RPC). After independence, Indian Penal Code was inherited by Pakistan (now called Pakistan Penal Code) and Bangladesh, formerly part of British India. It was also adopted wholesale by the British colonial authorities in Burma, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, and remains the basis of the criminal codes in those countries ~ Wikipedia.
