As per Indian Penal Code 107 (ipc) abetting is a crime equal to commiting it.
A person (Abettor – Read ipc 108) abets the doing of a thing, who –
First- Instigates any person to do that thing; or
Secondly- Engages with one or more other person or persons in any conspiracy for the doing of that thing, if an act or illegal omission takes place in pursuance of that conspiracy, and in order to the doing of that thing
(a) A instigates B to murder C. B refuses to do so. A is guilty of abetting B to commit murder.
(b) A instigates B to murder D. B in pursuance of the instigation stabs D. D recovers from the wound. A is guilty of instigating B to commit murder.
Explanation 3- lt. is not necessary that the person abetted should be capable by law of committing an offence, or that he should have the same guilty intention or intention or knowledge as that of the abettor, or any guilty intention or knowledge.
In India, said crime is commited by a women, here in this case a Divorced women, who instigate, responsible, to murder mans wife, will not punished under this law.
Man is not a fool to kill his only wife, and ruin his marriage / family unless other women force him to commite such crime, she might have told him kill her, get rid of her, but under eyes of indian judicary thats not crime, coz she is a women.
