Theft is punishable crime in the Pakistan Law. According to section 378 of P.P.C. Pakistan, “whoever intending to take dishonestly any movable property out of the possession of any person without that person’s consent, moves that property in order to such taking is said to commit theft.
Any criminal charge can have lasting consequences on a person’s life. This is especially true for theft-related convictions. In addition to jail time and a criminal record, a theft conviction can result in, among other things, employers denying an employment opportunity.
