Juvenile Justice bill needs some provision for brutal crimes: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress will finalize its stance on the Juvenile Justice Bill on Tuesday, but said some provision must be made to deal with brutal cases like the gang rape of a young woman in the capital in 2012.

Congress spokesperson PL Punia said the party will decide its stance at a meeting on Tuesday morning.

But we agree that some provision must be made to deal with cases like Nirbhaya.

The bill is likely to be taken up by the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday. There have been demands by members that the bill should be sent to a select committee.

The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill, 2014, provides for the trial of those between 16-18 years of age as adults for heinous offenses. Also, anyone between 16 and 18 years who commits a less serious offense may be tried as an adult if he is apprehended after he attains the age of 21. (IANS)(Picture
