IPC S. 506

IPC, 1860 (XLV of 1860), Section 506, 366A   - Charge of Criminal Intimidation - Proving the intention of the appellant to cause alarm or compel doing/abstaining from some act, and not mere utterances of words, is a pre­requisite of successful conviction under Section 506 of IPC - The trial Court has undertaken no such separate analysis or recorded any finding on this count, thus calling into question the conviction for criminal intimidation. #2020 SCeJ 1139

Held further, the nature of this charge is such that it is a derivative of the main charge of ‘procuration of minor girls’. Given the facts of this case where the common testimony of PW­1 on both charges has been doubted, it would be unwise to rely upon it as the sole piece of evidence to convict the appellant for criminal intimidation without any other corroboration. #2020 SCeJ 1139
