Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH)
This criminal offence is provided in the Offences against the Person Act 1861 under Sections 18 and 20. GBH simply means inflicting serious injuries to a person, including bone fracture or perpetual disfigurement. It is the most serious form of non-fatal assault. Offences involved in this section are based on some specific intent. The expression of intent may include planning of an attack, deliberate use any kind of weapon or threats. Whereas, offences mentioned in section 20 lack the intent but they are otherwise unlawful and malicious, which may result in a serious injury.
