IndiaDecember 23, 2015, 12:18 pm

Three years after Jyoti Singh was brutally gangraped in a bus in Delhi, the Rajya Sabha has passed the amended Juvenile Justice Bill. The new law lowers the age of a juvenile from 18 to 16 years in the case of a heinous crime. As per the new law, the minimum punishment for a heinous crime will be 7 years behind bars. However, a juvenile cannot be sentenced to life imprisonment or given the death penalty.
