What’s affray????


Hello sir

“Affray” means a tussle or fighting between two or more persons, and there must be a stroke hit or offered, or a weapon drawn. An affray is committed in a public place and strives the terror in the mind of the people.

Section 159 of Indian Penal Code states when two or more persons by fighting in a public place, disturb public peace, they are said to commit affray

To constitute affray there must be

  1. Fight between two or more persons,
  2. In a public place, and
  3. Such fight must disturb peace

Section 160 of Indian penal code talks about its punishment which states that whoever commits an offence of affray, shall be punished with imprisonment of either descripttion for a term which may extend to one month, or liable to pay a fine which may be extended to one hundred rupees, or with both simultaneously.

Hope this helps
