Manoj Mishra @ Chhotkau v. State of Uttar Pradesh

Penal Code, 1860 – Section 506 –  there is any supporting evidence except the vague statement of the prosecutrix that whenever she shouted when he had attempted to have sexual acts with her, the appellant had threatened her not to say anything to anyone as otherwise he would kill her. There is no other statement or evidence relating to the incident or the manner in which the threat in its true sense was put forth. In that view, the conviction and sentence under Section 506 imposed by the trial court and affirmed by the High Court is not sustainable and is liable to be set aside.
