Section 126 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 – Explained!

It is interesting to note that such property can be forfeited by law. The section punishes both the act and its preparation with the same punishment at the same very place. The word ‘depredation’ means act of plundering or preying upon. While section 125 is limited to waging, or attempting or abetting to wage war only against any Asiatic Power, this section is not limited to committing, or making preparations for committing, depredation only on the territory of an Asiatic Power but extends to such an act on the territories of any Power that is in alliance or at peace with the Government of India.

The offence under this section is cognizable, non-bailable and non-compoundable, and is triable by court of session.
