Overt Act

It refers to the act performed by someone which is a part of preparation of a crime which becomes successful after the implementation of those innocent actions. Overt is an open act carried out quite naturally as in buying the map of the area where the bombing has to be carried out. Buying a map is a natural process for any human being, but once this act had been carried out to support and prepare the terrorist in their deeds, it becomes bound by the law and is considered a crime.
