Plan to steal

  • 1 Answer

In my neighborhood I saw 2 young boys making a serious plan to steal jewelry from a shop. I have recorded their conversation and also know where they stay. Can you please suggest the offence for which they can be charged?

You can hold them liable for criminal conspiracy under Section 120 A and B of IPC.

Section 120A in The Indian Penal Code

[120A. Definition of criminal conspiracy.—When two or more per­sons agree to do, or cause to be done,—

(1) an illegal act, or

(2) an act which is not illegal by illegal means, such an agree­ment is designated a criminal conspiracy: Provided that no agreement except an agreement to commit an offence shall amount to a criminal conspiracy unless some act besides the agreement is done by one or more parties to such agreement in pursuance thereof. Explanation.—It is immaterial whether the illegal act is the ultimate object of such agreement, or is merely incidental to that object.]
