Pune: After the Pune police approached the higher court for a waiver of the juvenile culprit, a 17-year-old who was involved in a fatal car crash, his lawyer informed that it could take up to 90 days for the process to complete. The teenage boy driving at a very high speed in a Porsche car on Sunday morning in Kalyani Nagar, Pune, rammed a bike, killing two technical guys, Anis Awadhiya and Ashwini Costa.

The Juvenile Justice Act (JJA) defines the legal processes for handling a Child in Conflict with Law (CCL) to ascertain whether that child should be tried in the juvenile or adult court. This task should take almost 90 days to accomplish this procedure.

Investigative agencies are to file a charge sheet within 30 days of arrest for the Juvenile or CCL if they want to consider him as an adult. Patil said, “There is a two-month process initiated once the charge sheet is filed, which includes clinical and social evaluation test as well as de-addiction test.”

Patil also pointed out that in conducting this, the accused does not have to be in rehabilitation. “On the specific operative orders, the honourable Juvenile Justice Board has ordered to confine the Child in Conflict with Law in a rehabilitation home for a period of 14 days or till May 31st, responding to the applications of investigation agencies to alter the bails issued,” he said adding that we have opposed the application having academic reasons and on legal grounds. Reports of the Juvenile Justice Board cancelling bail under Section 15 and transferring the teenager to a remand home came on Wednesday.
