Question

PRINCIPLE: All agreements are contracts if they are made by the free consent of parties

competent to contract, for a lawful consideration and with a lawful object, and are

not hereby expressly declared to be void. Consent is said to be free when it is devoid of coercion, undue influence, fraud, misrepresentation. “Coercion” is the committing, or threating to commit, any act forbidden by the Indian Penal Code or the unlawful 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.

The group of persons sent to her house take this but Ms. Manty silently feels her that electricity supply to her house shall be cut off by this.
