Indian Penal Code, 1860
410. Stolen Property
Property, the possession whereof has been transferred by theft, or by extortion, or by robbery, and property which has been criminally misappropriated or in respect of which 172[***] criminal breach of trust has been committed, is designed as "stolen property", 153[whether the transfer has been made, or the misappropriation or breach of trust has been committed, within or without 161[India]]. But, if such property subsequently comes into the possession of a person legally entitled to the possession thereof, it then ceases to be stolen property.
