A.R Antulay Case : A Judicial Response To Privileged Class Deviance
By Shambhavi, Chanakya National Law University, Patna.*
Breaking accepted social norms is commonly referred to as "deviance." As norms dictate nearly all human actions, the term "deviance" encompasses a wide range of behaviour. The structure of a society affects how deviation is understood, who or what is labelled as such, and what measures are taken in response to the problem. Nevertheless, it's only recently that society as a whole has begun to recognise that deviation has institutionalised origins. Always, deviation comes down to contrast.
