Is suicide a crime?

Is suicide a crime?

    Attempt to commit suicide and abetment of such an attempt are both criminal acts under our penal code. People who die by suicide NEVER intend harm. They are trying to end their pain, and their thinking is VERY distorted because of their mental illness. They die by suicide because they feel they do not have any other option. A person attempting suicide should be presumed to be suffering from mental illness at that time and will not be punished under the IPC-309. It will be the government's duty to provide care, treatment and rehabilitation to a person with mental illness and attempted suicide. This will be to reduce the risk of recurrence of such an act. Suicide should remain generally illegal but not punishable, and there should just be an exception granted to people who are terminally ill and in excruciating pain. The right to live with dignity should come with the right to a dignified death as well.
