Dear all, Am an accused and being charged by the prosecution under section 380 IPC. But the prosecution story is that I have committed theft in the staircase of the building. My question is whether staircase falls under the definition of building per section 380 IPC? The stolen articles were kept in the staircase by the owner. Staircase neither falls under 'human dwelling' nor 'under custody' as mentioned in 380 IPC. Even the site map is silent to the point where the staircase exists. Whether inside building or outside? Please advise.
