Section 506- represents Punishment for Criminal Intimidation. To go by legal dictionary, we can say that Criminal Intimidation under Sec 506 IPC, mention “Whoever is committing the offense of this criminal intimidation will be punished and send to the imprisonment of a decided term which may extend up to 2 years or a fine will be charged, or both fine and imprisonment can be levied.

In general, under Section 506, IPC is a bailable one and also non-cognizable in India completely. Well, it is excluding Jammu & Kashmir, and here IPC does not apply and except in the States where the application of such Section has been amended.

If any individual is registering his complaint under section 506 without any proof, then it turns to be the responsibility of the concerned police officer who will be investigating the case, and will make the call to decide if the information in the complaint is serious or not and of which type.

A police station receives N numbers of complaints every day. Its difficult filing FIR against all complaints. So, the proof is significant, and it depends on the evidence submitted by the person making the complaint about the immediate filing of FIR. Aside from this, you must note that in case it lacks no concrete or sufficient evidence with the complainant, then it will be difficult for the police officer in charge to make the immediate arrests. All that they can do is to call the accused mentioned in the complaint about investigation right at the police station, but arresting will not be possible without any proper investigation or reasoning.

Hope things are clear now as what will be the punishment for the accused under section 506, and there are other factors and punishment involved when the threat be to cause death or seriously hurt. You can speak to a lawyer to know better.
