Consider setting up child-friendly courtroom: HC

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday directed the Maharashtra government to consider on "priority", establishing a "model child-friendly courtroom" for minor victims, witnesses and juveniles facing inquiry under a protection law for them.

A bench of Justices Naresh Patil and GS Kulkarni also directed Maharashtra Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni to file, within a month, a comprehensive reply on the status of vacancies at child welfare committees and Juvenile Justice Boards across the state, and on all such provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act (JJ Act) that are yet to be implemented.
