Can’t hold minors in dowry case: HC PDF Print E-mail
(1 Vote)
Written by Krishnadas Rajagopal   

The second paragraph alleged the minors teamed up with family members to mercilessly beat their sister-in-law and "even broke her hand before turning her out of the house in just the clothes she was wearing".

Justice Bhat's order read: "No act done by a child aged under seven is ever deemed an offence. An act done by a child above seven years of age and below 12, who has not attained sufficient maturity of understanding to judge the nature and consequences of his conduct, is also not an offence."

This case, the judge said, had violated the Parliamentary concern to protect children in conflict with law from the "stigma attached to them, which often mars their growth, seriously affects their education and in some instances blights their future life".

"Childhood encapsulates the most treasured part of one's life. In this case, the court can safely assume that important chunks of these two minor girls' childhood was deprived by the callous disregard of their rights by the police," the court said.

Bhat's ruling:
* The Juvenile Justice Board to file a comprehensive chart of all pending cases within six weeks.
* The state should "cooperate" with the Board to provide the latter with necessary staff, equipment, computers, for "due compliance".
* The court will verify the government's compliance and give further directions on March 3, 2009.
