Definitions and Meaning of hostage in English

hostage noun

  1. a prisoner who is held by one party to insure that another party will meet specified terms



    बंधक, बन्धक


A hostage is a person seized by an abductor in order to compel another party, one which places a high value on the liberty, well-being and safety of the person seized—such as a relative, employer, law enforcement, or government—to act, or refrain from acting, in a certain way, often under threat of serious physical harm or death to the hostage(s) after expiration of an ultimatum. The Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition defines a hostage as "a person who is handed over by one of two belligerent parties to the other or seized as security for the carrying out of an agreement, or as a preventive measure against certain acts of war."

संपत्ति अंतरण अधिनियम 1882 की धारा 58(a) में बंधक (Mortgage) को परिभाषित किया गया है I जिसके अनुसार बंधक का तात्पर्य किसी ऋण के रूप में अग्रिम तौर पर ली गई या ली जाने वाली राशी अथवा कोई विधमान या भविष्य ऋण अथवा किसी कार्य व्यवहार से उत्पन्न आर्थिक देनदारियों के दायित्व के भुगतान की सुरक्षा के उद्देश्य के लिए किसी विनिर्दिष्ट अचल संपत्ति में हित के अंतरण से हैं I
