Use juveniles for ‘big tasks’ as they face lenient punishment

Seventeen-year-old Vikas (name changed) is from a well-to-do family. A school dropout, he became famous among his friends in the locality after he started keeping an expensive mobile phone and pistol, wearing branded clothes and often throwing parties for his friends at a restaurant where the owner saluted him and never asked for money. Recently, when he was apprehended for his involvement in the murder of a property dealer in West Delhi’s Vikaspuri, the police recovered a stolen car and three pistols from his possession.

Like Vikas, the Delhi police had apprehended 905 juveniles till May 31 for their involvement in various criminal activities.

“Juveniles usually start with petty crimes and with time they join big gangs to get social identity and power in the locality. Gang leaders provide them with guns, cars [stolen ones] and money before they are given tasks to execute heinous crimes like murders, kidnapping and extortion,” said a police officer.
