With the Juvenile Justice Act of 2015 coming into force from Friday and allowing for lower culpable age of a juvenile, such accused can now be tried as adults for heinous crimes.

The act provides for placing such offender children in a ‘place of safety’ both during and after the trial till they attain the age of 21, after which his/her evaluation shall be conducted by the children’s court.

After the evaluation, the child is either released on probation and if not reformed, he/she will be sent to a jail for the remaining term.
