3 new Juvenile Justice Board passed by Delhi govt
NEW DELHI: In an attempt to cover the maximum area of the Capital, Delhi government on Tuesday sanctioned the proposal of three new Juvenile Justice Board. The board reported that with increasing number of juvenile crimes in the city, it was facing trouble to act on every single case and many cases were pending.
"We want to make the system of justice faster and that needed more centers," said a senior official of the board. He explained that due to the locations of the existing boards, it was difficult to reach the whole city.
The people from the outskirts of Delhi were not getting much focus and many cases come from these areas, he added.
The minister of Women and Child Development Department Manish Sisodia has approved the plan of making new boards. One of these centers will be in Narela and the location of the other centres are still not decided. The Juvenile Justice Committee recommended the need for these centres and also suggested the increase of workforce.
The minister made this committee to understand the flaws of the board.
