TSA FOUGHT FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM’S RIGHT TO Juveniles
In this case around five people were arrested based on the allegations of gang rape. The alleged incident took place on 11.06.2021 and since no documentary proof of date of birth of two boys was available, ossification test of both was conducted by the Medical Board of Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital, GNCTD, Mangol Puri Delhi on 06.07.2021. As per ossification test report of applicant, bone age of both the boys was between 18 to 20 years.
TSA team filed an application u/s 9 (2) along with Section 94
Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 for declaring the boys as juveniles and transferring the case to the Juvenile justice board.
It was argued by the TSA team that the boys were CCL on the date of incident. The alleged incident took place on 11.06.2021 and bone ossification test was conducted one month after
the incident and even after one month the age of the boys fell between 18-20 years range. Hence the boys were juveniles at the time of incident and hence we requested Hon’ble court
that the boys be declared as CCL and case file be transferred to concerned JJB and Jail Superintendent be also directed to transfer the boys to observation home.
