Give me life...
Juveniles not criminals...
28/06/2007

Can there be something more inhuman than when juveniles are being lodged with adults and hardened criminals on the lame excuse that there is a shortage of custodial facility? Shockingly, there are numerous cases where police sent juveniles to jail even when they are eligible for bail, and are not given to circumvent extra paperwork. Asian Center for Human Rights has revealed that the Capital, Delhi, had 3,050 juvenile cases pending in 2005 and there was only one juvenile justice board, Kingsway Camp. These resulted in massive number of inmates being incarcerated longer than the time prescribed for offence.

The largest democracy, India, is desperately suffering for its weakest laws and a Juvenile Justice Act, 1986, undoubtedly is one of them. The outcome of recent amendment (enhancement of age 16 to 18) is nothing but increased workload to the juvenile justice court. For all the big talks of being the largest democracy in the world, sadly as a society, we have not been able to translate it into a workable one, where the concepts of liberty have real meaning and people can carry their fundamental rights right up their sleeve.So long education and opportunities would remain an exclusivity of the elite. Such juvenile crimes would also become a norm rather than exception.
