Hi Anil Ji, I’m Adv. Niharika and here is my take on your query.

Chap XVI deals with “Offences affecting the Body” which in lay man terms are referred to “Bodily Offences”, S.299-377 are provided under the said chapter.

If by the query you meant to ask, “what are bodily offence?” Then here is my answer.

These are offences committed against the person/human body which might be of little impact / injury (assault, simple hurt) or of fatal nature (culpable homicide, murder, etc.) there is a detailed list of kinds of different offences under this chapter.

I’m attaching links for relevant articles for your convenient reading. Kindly find them below.

I hope this information helps and for further information, you can contact me via email at
