Criminal conspiracy IPC – Criminal conspiracy definition in IPC
[See: Section 120A IPC]
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:
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.
It is immaterial whether the illegal act is the ultimate object of such agreement, or is merely incidental to that object.
