In criminal and civil law, assault is an attempt to initiate harmful or offensive contact with a person, or a threat to do so.It is distinct from battery, which refers to the actual achievement of such contact.
An assault is carried out by a threat of bodily harm coupled with an apparent, present ability to cause the harm. It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in either criminal and/or civil liability. Generally, the common law definition is the same in criminal and tort law..
Under IPC ,An assault is defined as “whoever makes any gesture,or any preparation intending or knowing it to be likely that such gesture or preparation will cause any person present to apprehend that he who makes that gesture or preparation is about to use criminal force to that person , is said to commit assault.”
