Please help me in this problem.

A person was travelling in a bus without ticket. He was caught by conductor. What offence that person has committed?

Are you kidding or serious?

yes sir, i'm serious. Actually our mam had raised us this question. According to mam, it was a offence of misappropriation of property. but according to me, it was a breach of contract. where the person was in implied duty to pay bus fare. but he didn't pay. and the person was also liable under Motor vehicle Act, 1988 under section 178.

Sir please give me appropriate answer.
