Whoever intentionally puts any person in fear of any injury to that person, or to any other, and thereby dishonestly induces the person so put in fear to deliver to any person any property, or valuable security or anything signed or sealed which may be converted into a valuable security, commits "extortion".

Simply Put

This section punishes theft after preparation is made for causing death, hurt or restraint in order to the committing of the theft. It says that whoever commits theft, having made preparation for causing either death, or hurt, or restraint, or fear of death, or of hurt, or of restraint, to any person in order to either committing of such theft, or in order to the effecting of his escape after such theft is committed, or in order to the retaining of property taken by such theft, shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment extending up to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine. The two illustrations adequately illustrate the section.
