Kashmir has ignored its juvenile justice law for years and is now moving to weaken it

In late summer of 2017, 16-year old Junaid* waited for his turn at Srinagar’s Bemina district court. He was visibly disoriented and shuffled in his chair uncomfortably as he spoke of the criminal cases against him. He broke into inaudible whispers as he spoke, almost inviting the family elders with him to fill the silences.

The police had picked him up on what he claimed were false charges of “stone-pelting” in 2012. They had kept him in the police station without informing his parents, and eventually formalised the charges against him after not recording a formal arrest for days. Since then, he was required to visit the chief judicial magistrate almost every month, waiting for the police to proceed in the case. Like most cases against juveniles, the police investigation had not moved an inch.
