Crime by Juveniles

As per data available with the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), there has been a rise of 132% in incidents of crimes committed by juveniles against women in 2013 over previous year i.e. 2012.

The Ministry of Women and Child Development has recently introduced the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill 2014 in the Lok Sabha which contains both punitive and reformative measures for children in conflict with law. The objective of the bill is therefore to provide both deterrent and reformative options for overall development of children.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary in a written reply to Shri Sisir Kumar Adhikari in the Lok Sabha today.
