Section 362 of IPC deals with Abudction and involved deceitful movement. However abduction is not a substantive offence and cannot be individually punished unless there is another intent coupled with it to commit some other offence.


Section 362 in The Indian Penal Code

362. Abduction.—Whoever by force compels, or by any deceitful means induces, any person to go from any place, is said to abduct that person.
