BIHARSHARIF: The principal judge of the Juvenile Justice Board, Manvendra Mishra, awarded a three-year jail term to a minor on Wednesday for raping a girl in a Rajgir village in May.
The additional public prosecutor (APP), Rajesh Pathak, told this reporter that the survivor’s sister had registered an FIR against the minor on May 6. She stated that the accused, who lived in their neighbourhood, took the girl to his house and raped her on May 4. She narrated the ordeal to her sister the next day after which the accused was arrested on May 7.
The APP added, “Police had framed charges against the minor, who pleaded not guilty, under different sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.”
While passing the order, Mishra directed the superintendent of the correction home in Biharsharif where the convict had been lodged since his arrest on May 7 to ensure his immediate transfer to a special home in Patna. He also asked the superintendent of the special home to make sure that “the minor’s education is not affected and he is taught skill development”. Besides, the superintendent was told to apprise the court of the minor’s behavioural changes every six months.
