A.Dear client,
The key points of this are to remember to:
1. Not get angry as it will escalate the situation.
2. Remain calm even if the neighbour doesn’t.
3. If the neighbour becomes aggressive, retreat from the situation immediately and call the Police if you need to at any point.
4. If you are uncomfortable with directly approaching your neighbour because they may have been difficult in the past, you may need to start gathering evidence of their behaviour if they are being difficult or they are harassing you.

- Section 268 of the Indian Penal Code defines nuisance when the person is guilty of a public nuisance when he does any act which causes injury, danger or annoyance to the public or the people in general who live or occupy the property in the neighborhood.
If this type of harassment is faced by you from your neighbor then, you can file an application under Section 268 of IPC in the court of magistrate.
- You can also file a case of defamation against them under Section 499 of IPC.
