A death sentence is a very rare occurrence in any democracy. And it is a very known fact that after a death sentence is passed, judges break the nib. Since the time of the British Raj, the custom of breaking the nib after awarding a death sentence has been followed by Indian judges.

A death sentence, in principle, is a last resort action in dealing with extremely anti-social acts that cannot be resolved in any other way.
