Dear querist,

You need to file an immediate case against him. you may use section 506 IPC. It stands for criminal intimidation. As the owner is threatening you, you may use section 506 IPC. Additionally, you may also use section 195 A of IPC. This stands for threatening a person to produce false evidence. Section 498 A, IPC also comes into play, it represents physical or mental harassment. Here the question that needs to be answered is, can he file a case against you without any contract/agreement/bond. The answer is that he can file a case against you, as contracts are the soul of filing any lawsuit. But here there’s no mandate that the document should be written, oral contracts or verbal contracts are also given due importance in the court.

Thankyou,

Shraddha.
