On these findings the plaintiffs suit for cancellation of the deed was decreed. The material contentions in second appeal are found in the grounds 3 and 4 of the memorandum as follows: The facts relied upon by the Courts below do not in law constitute coercion or undue influence.

A, even if proved, cannot invalidate the document," Coercion is defined Contract ActSection 15 as "committing, or threatening to commit, any act forbidden by the Indian Penal Codeor the Ranganayakamma vs alwar setti case detaining, or threatening to detain any property to the prejudice of any person whatever, with the intention of causing any person to enter into an agreement".

I think the words "any person whatever" have been advisedly used by the legislature to indicate that the act need not be to the prejudice of the person entering into the Contract.

I think also that the words " to the prejudice of any person whatever," which are separated by a comma from the previous word "property" relate both to the committing or threatening to commit an act forbidden by the Penal Code and to the unlawful detaining or threatening to detain property.

It means the same thing whether, when a man kills himself, it is called an act of suicide or a successfully accomplished attempt to commit suicide; and an attempt to commit suicide is punishable under the Penal Code. Hence suicide and an attempt to commit suicide are acts forbidden by the Penal Code though the former cannot be punished under the code as a dead man cannot be punished.

Provided the threat of the forbidden act does have the intended effect of bringing about the consent to the agreement, it does not matter who made the threat or to whose prejudice it was made.

It is unnecessary to go into the question whether prejudice or injury to sentiments, feelings or supposed spiritual welfare is also contemplated in the definition of coercion in the Contract Act.

Sections, etc. Sastriar put the following question in support of his contention: See Section 19 of the Contract Act and the explanation thoreto. That the threat need not proceed from the party to the agreement has been held in Askari Mirza v.

Jai Kishori 16 I. It is unnecessary to consider in detail the question whether the release deed was caused by undue influence.

The line between coercion Section 15 of the Contract Act and undue influence Section 16 of the Act is sometimes thin and it is possible to conceive of cases where the Act might fall under both beads.

Alwar Setti I. I think that when a man uses a threat of suicide to his wife and his son and they owing to the distress of mind caused by the strength of that threat execute a document, they are persons "whose mental capacity" which, I take it, includes volitional freedom and strength "is temporarily affected by reason of mental distress" within the meaning of that expression in Clause 2 b of Section 16 of the Contract Act.

I would therefore dismiss the second appeal with costs. I regret that I have the misfortune to differ from my learned brother.Ranganayakamma Vs.
