Supreme Court wants Government to make Juvenile Law More Deterrent

The Supreme Court of India asked the government to make all necessary changes in the currentjuvenile law in a bid to make it more deterrent and send a stronger message to the society that the life of a victim was equally important under the rule of law.

The apex court also observed that it was “extremely difficult” to accept that any juvenile would not be aware of the possible consequences while committing grave crimes such as rape, murder, and robbery. The court further stated that the growing involvement of minors in such grave and heinous crimes demanded some serious changes in the existing Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000.
