Wrongful Restraint

July 22, 2023

Wrongful restraint, also known as illegal restraint, is defined under many legal systems as an offense committed when one person intentionally restricts the movement of another person unlawfully. The Indian Penal Code (IPC) provides a definition of wrongful restraint under Section 339. However, the legal definitions may vary slightly depending on the jurisdiction.

Elements of Wrongful Restraint:

  • Intentional Act: There must be an intentional act by the accused to restrain the movement of another person.
  • Unlawful Restriction: The restraint must be without the consent of the person being restrained and must be against the law.
  • No Consent: The person being restrained did not give their consent to the restraint.
