ipc 506 & 504 : 9 Top Points

ipc 506, ipc 504

1.     IPC or the Indian Penal code is the main criminal code of India. It defines the crime conducted by the citizens of India and punishments for committing them. IPC was implemented in the year 1807 during British rule and except for the Indian Army, it applies to the whole country. 

2.     Section 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code deals with any intentional insult to provoke the breach of peace and punishment for criminal intimidation, respectively. 

3.     Section 504 of the Indian Penal Code specifies that if a person intentionally insults another person or intentionally provokes another person intending or knowing that such provocation would ultimately cause him to commit any offense or break public peace then he/she will be charged under IPC 504. If found guilty, the Court shall punish the accused with imprisonment which may extend up to two years, or with a fine, or with both. 

4.     Section 506 of the Indian Penal Code specifies that if a person intimidates another person with murder threats, rape threats or any threats directed towards his life, property or family then the person will be charged under IPC 506.  

5.     Threats to cause death or grievous hurt, a threat to destroy any property by fire are called criminal threats and any person intimidating another person with criminal threats will be charged under section 506 of the Indian Penal Code. Also, if a person imputes a woman or blames the honor or character of a woman, then he/she will be charged under IPC 506. 

6.      In simple language, if a person threatens or intimidates another person punishable with a minimum of 7 years of imprisonment or more including life imprisonment or death penalty then the person threatening to commit such a crime will be charged under Section 506 of the Indian Penal Code. For example, if a person threatens another person with murder threats and as the punishment for murder in our country is life imprisonment, then the person threatening to commit this crime will be charged under IPC Section 506. 

7.     An accused charged under IPC 506 if found guilty will be punished with imprisonment which may increase up to seven years, or with fine, or with both. 

8.     Another point to keep in mind is that IPC Section 506 doesn't rely much upon witnesses. If the complainant by any means proves in the Court that they threaten her then it can get dangerous for the accused. 

9.     The offense under Section 506 IPC continues to be bailable and non-cognizable.
