when a child do crime?? theres a big reason for a child to be a criminal ..... if a child is poor , his parents can't afford his education and therefore he is bound to work as a  labour or servant they even work in a bad environment... so they also start doing bad works like stealing small things and after few years the stealing of small things get converted into the robbery... the things that the child didn't got in his past is the care and love of parents therefore he becomes like this ... because every criminal has his own emotional story behind his crimes ... therefore we should educate poor children then only our dream of crime free india will be possible
