Inside a juvenile home9 min read 15 May 2015, 04:09 PM IST
What will the juvenile justice amendment Bill achieve? We met a 17-year-old in a 'bachcha' jail, where the inmates need much more than legislation
When he realized the man was dead, there was the question of getting rid of the body. It was not something the 17-year-old had done before. The corpse was heavy, of a man twice his age and size. He was not sure what to do, but the river was close by. Four hours later, he was caught trying to dump the body into the river. At around 2am, as the police took him away, the dead man’s family ran after the van, screaming, “God will punish you for what you have done, you will suffer all your life."
