Read IPC Section It is very easy yaar.

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.
