    “Tort is a civil wrong for which the remedy is a common law action for unliquidated damages, and which is not exclusively the breach of contract, or, the breach of trust, or, other merely equitable obligation.”

    – Salmond

    To establish an act amounting to tort, there must be a wrongful act or an omission. There must exist some breach of duty to constitute such an unlawful act or omission. It means that there was a duty to do or not to do a specific action, or to act in a particular manner which a reasonable man of ordinary prudence is expected to act under certain circumstances.

    Further, to constitute a tort, there must be a breach of legal duty, and there should have been a breach of s legal right vested with the plaintiff, i.e. a specific act or omission must have resulted in the breach of a legal obligation. The action can only be instituted against the other party if there exist a breach of a legal right. For the injury so sustained by the plaintiff, damages could be claimed by him.
