OBJECTIVE OF THE BOOK
Crime against child is not an offence against an individual only but against the whole society. In the present social context, children are more vulnerable to crime and it’s mandatory that the State should protect the life and liberty of its citizen especially the marginalized and weaker sections. But the proved ineffectiveness on the part of the State to curb the crimes against child erodes the confidence in the rule of law.
The neglect and indifference toward the children in India during the investigation and subsequent prosecution help the offenders bypass penal provisions of law. The increasing rate of acquittal in offences against child shows that judicial responses towards child victims are not sympathetic. Children are the most important asset of any nation. They are the crucial element for the prosperity of a nation. They are exploited, ill- treated and directed in to undesirable channels by antisocial element in the community. The worldwide victimization of children can be prevented, or at least its incidence can be greatly reduced, if decisive action is taken.
This Book will takes stock of the current context and aims to bring greater clarity as to how children are victims and vulnerable to various crimes in India. This book will assess the administration of Juvenile Justice System in India. This Book will also focus that children have a right to respect for their evolving capacities and that respecting this right would re-direct the criminal justice system towards a normative framework better equipped to accommodate the realities of childhood; one which contains a clear foregrounding of the child’s experiences and the reality of their daily lives and in which the child’s experience of powerlessness and vulnerability is embedded throughout.
