SC notice to J&K, centre on 12-year-old offender's plea

Monday March 11, 2013 07:39:09 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday issued notice to the central and Jammu and Kashmir governments on a plea seeking the quashing of a criminal case against a 12-year-old boy and implementation of a law on juvenile offenders in the state.

An apex court bench of Justice R.M. Lodha, Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice Madan B. Lokur also issued notice on the plea of alleged illegal "detention, harassment and torture of the juvenile" of the Srinagar boy and demand for a Rs.10 lakh compensation.

The boy was accused of pelting stones on police at Iddgah, Ali Jan Road, Aug 20, 2012.

The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, which deals with juvenile delinquents, is applicable in the entire country except in Jammu and Kashmir.

The apex court issued notice in the wake of submission by the senior counsel Bhim Singh that the boy was arrested Aug 25, 2012, and kept in police custody for 40 hours before being presented before a Srinagar magistrate who, Aug 27, 2012, ordered that the accused be sent to judicial custody and re-presented in court Sep 10, 2012.

Though a sessions court granted bail to the boy Aug 28, 2012, Bhim Singh told the apex court that the arrest and police detention of the boy for 40 hours and his remand by the magistrate were illegal.

He said that the detention of the boy by police was in violation of Article 22 of the constitution that provides for protection against arrest and detention in certain cases.
