A Critical Comment on the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015

Hilal Ahmad Najar [2]

Abstract: The Nirbhaya rape and murder case has once again brought the efficacy of the juvenile justice laws in India under scanner. The popular belief is that children who are capable to commit crime must suffer. This belief found its place in the new legislation pertaining young offenders for a particular age group of the children. The new legislation does not differ from the scrapped legislation on this point only but on many other points which need to highlight before it is too late. This paper is a modest attempt to highlight not only the demerits but also the merits of the latest legislation concerning the Children in Conflict with law.
