Despite a juvenile justice system in place in Jammu and Kashmir, children continue to serve imprisonment in jails. In the latest case, a juvenile from Kulgam was detained by police last Friday and, only after the intervention of the Juvenile Justice Board, the 14-year-old boy was sent to observation home for juveniles four days later.

Sajad Ahmad, member JJB Kulgam said, “On Friday (25th of January) I received a call from child welfare committee Kulgam at 11 in the morning that a juvenile from Qaimoh area of Kulgam has been apprehended.”
