Delhi, Aug 7 (ANI): Amnesty International strongly criticized the proposed amendment to the Juvenile Justice Act. Terming the amendment to the Juvenile Justice Act as having “serious implications”, Amnesty International spokesperson Gopika Bashi pointed out that India is a signatory to the World Declaration on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children. Bashi said that her organization believes that though children commit crimes, their motivations are different than that of adults, and that they often commit crimes without being aware of the consequences.
