Here we are going to explain
what is section 383 inThe Indian Penal Code (IPC).
In this section states that whoever intentionally puts any person in fear of
any injury to that person, or to any other, and thereby dishonestly induces the
person so put in fear to deliver to any person any property, or valuable
security or anything signed or sealed which may be converted into a valuable
security, commits “extortion”.
1. A threatens to publish a
defamatory libel concerning Z unless Z gives him money. He thus induces Z to
give him money. A has committed extortion.
2. A threatens Z that he will
keep Z’ child in wrongful confinement, unless Z will sign and deliver to A a
promissory note binding Z to pay certain monies to A to Z sings and delivers
the note. A has committed extortion.
3. A threatens to send club-men
to plough up Z’ field unless Z will sign and deliver to B a bond binding Z
under a penalty to deliver certain produce to B, and thereby induces Z to sign
and deliver the bond. A has committed extortion.
4. A, by putting Z in fear of
grievous hurt, dishonestly induces Z to sign or affix his seal to a blank paper
and deliver it to A. Z sings and delivers the paper to A. Here, as the paper so
signed may be converted into a valuable security A has committed extortion.
