Please read the following statement " Pay me my money or I go to court". Will this amount to extortion. If yes then is there any Suprmen court case law supporting it.
Please revert on priority.

In my opinion it doesnt amount to extortion. The facts do not attract all the ingredients of offence of extortion.

There is no ' ingredients ' of " EXTORTION " in the Statement.

Your question does not contain the ingredients of offence extortion as contemplated in section 383 of I.P.C. The ingredients of offence extortion are:(1)Putting a person in fear(2)The fear caused to aperson must be a fear of injury either to himself or to some other person in whom the person put in fear is interested(3) the fear mut be intentionally caused.(4) As a consquence of the fear so exercise the person put in fear is induced by the offender to deliver any property or any valuable securty or anything signed or sealed to any person which is capble of being converted into a valuable securtity.(5) The offender mut act dishonestly in doing so, i.e., he must act with the intention to cause wrongfull gain or wrongful loss. So the punishement for extortion is U/S 384 .I.P.C

But if the offender has the intention and knowledge tht whtever he is doing could form a component of extortion and he has cleverly selected word so that he cannot be framed. Under such circumstances wht should be done.
