WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ROBBERY AND EXTORTION?
Nirupom Dutta (advocate) 14 May 2011
S.383 of the IPC: Extortion
Under S.383 of the IPC, 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 any property or valuable security, or
anything signed or sealed which may be
converted into a valuable security, commits
"extortion". Suppose 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
now what is Robbery S.390 of the IPC states that in all robbery cases,
there is either extortion or theft.
Theft is ‘robbery’ if, in order to commit the
theft, or in committing the theft, or in carrying
away or attempting to carry away property
obtained by the theft, the offender, for that
end, voluntarily causes or attempts to cause to
any person death or hurt or wrongful
restraint, or fear of instant death or of instant
hurt, or of instant wrongful restraint.
Extortion is ‘robbery’ if the offender, at the
time of committing the extortion, is in the
presence of the person put in fear, and
commits the extortion by putting that person
in fear of instant death, of instant hurt, or of
instant wrongful restraint to that person or to
some other person, and, by so putting in fear,
induces the person so put in fear then and
there to deliver up the thing extorted. ok.
