SHABIR IBN YUSUF

Srinagar, Mar 12: Police have booked three juveniles for alleged stone pelting during the last four days.
Speaking to Greater Kashmir, Superintendent Juvenile Home, Ghulam Ahmad Manphoo said three minors were brought there since last Saturday who have been booked for alleged stone pelting. Manphoo identified them as Zubair Ahmad of Sumbal Bandipora, Imtiyaz Ahmad Malla of Pattan Baramulla and Muhammad Amir of Srinagar.
The Superintendent said that he was hopeful about the bail of the trio. “I am sure they will be bailed in a day or two,” he said. “For last some time we were receiving minors involved in thefts and other cases, not stone pelting,” he said.
The official said that besides these three, five more boys are detained in the juvenile home in other cases. “Four are allegedly involved in theft and one boy from Pahallan is accused in a militancy related case,”
Manphoo said.
On Monday, Supreme Court issued notice to Jammu and Kashmir government on a Public Interest Litigation seeking implementation of Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act in the state and quashing of proceedings and paying Rs 10 lakh compensation to minor Faizan who was arrested by Jammu and Kashmir Police last year.
Since 2008, police have detained dozens of children on charges of stone pelting and taking part in separatist protests.
A class 6 student, Faizan was charged by police with harsh accusations like ‘waging war against the State’ and ‘attempt to murder.’
