This statement itself inherently speaks that the Code also contains other species of culpable homicide.
The above mentioned first species of culpable homicide is known as ‘murder’ punishable under s. 302 of the Code, while the second and third species of culpable homicide is known as ”Culpable homicide not amounts to murder’ which is punishable under first part of sec. 304 of the Code if it is committed intentionally or by second part of s. 304 of the Code if it is committed without intention.
First difference is, Murder is a SPECIAL KIND OF Culpable Homicide. So, CH is the genus and Murder is the specie.
All Murders are CHs but not CHs are murders. They are referred to as CH not amounting to Murder. Also called ‘Manslaughter’ in some nations.
