Intentional tort is basically an act done by a person with an objective ,a purpose with a clear mindset to cause wrongful damage. An act which is intentional in nature and is done for a wrong purpose.
The intention of the person is questioned and assumed when a person has committed a crime .
The intention matters a lot when it comes to coming to a verdict. If a person with wrongful intention , in order to just scare or frighten the person , runs behind the person with a stick , would amount to intentional tort . While , If a person while playing cricket by mistake hits the ball in such a way that it hits the head of a person , would not amount to an act of tort as there was no intention here to harm the person in any way.

Assault- assault is an act that frames or constructs other person‘s mind in fear of physical damage.

Example a person is running behind another person with a stick in his hand is an example of assault as there is no physical contact but the person running has a fear of getting hit which can cause physical damage.

Battery is unlike assault, it is an actual contact with the other person.In this case , the intention of the person is to cause wrongful damage and has a clear mindset and objective towards a person and is well aware what would be the after effects of his/her particular actions.

For example – A person pissed on his neighbour due to some reason , takes his gun and run towards the his neighbour and hits the person from the bullet . Under this illustration we can clearly understand that , the person knew that firing a gun would cause physical damage to the person , it decided to proceed , plus there was physical contact .

False Imprisonment is confining a person within a specific area and restricting the movement of the person or individual without its consent or justification.

Example a bus when hijacked by terrorist a restricted the passenger travelling tin the bus to move .
It restricts the free movement of the public or person travelling .

, This could be situation of false imprisonment
