January 27, 2019 0 Comment

The use of the words ‘in order to the committing of extortion’ shows that extortion may not be committed. But in order to its committing the offender puts or attempts to put any person in fear of an accusation whether against that person or any person. The accusation must be that he had committed or attempted to commit any such offence as is punishable with death, or imprisonment for life, or imprisonment up to ten years. If the accusation is that he had committed an unnatural offence the punishment will be severer and may extend to imprisonment for life.

The offence under this section is cognizable, bailable and non-compoundable, and is triable by magistrate of the first class.
