Jammu bus stand grenade attack: JJB orders Medical Board for finding age of accused

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 14: The Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) has directed the authorities concerned to constitute a Medical Board to determine age of the accused in the Jammu bus stand grenade attack in which two persons died and 30 others injured in February this year.
The JJB comprising Meyank Gupta, Principal Magistrate, Nischint Pachnanda and Dr. Chesthta Sharma, after hearing CPO Parshant Mahajan with PO Amir Beigh in an application filed by the police, directed Superintendent/In-charge Government Medical College Jammu to constitute a Medical Board comprising a physiologist, a dental examiner and a radiologist or forensic expert, of whom one shall be notified as the chairperson. All the members of the Medical Board shall give their individual finding on age, which shall then be forwarded to the Chairperson of the Board to give the final opinion on the age of the accused within a margin of one year. The JJB further directed the GMC to give their report with the findings within 15 days.
The JJB after hearing CPO Parshant Mahajan observed that from the bare perusal of the above provision, it is amply clear that the Board shall decide the question of juvenility on the basis of physical appearance or the documents available. In the case in hand, the Board was made available with certain documents pertaining to the DOB of the JCL and on the basis of those documents prima facie the age of the JCL on the date of commission of alleged offences was 13 years approximately but from the physical appearance, the JCL appears to be more than 13 years of age.
Accordingly, this Board directed the conduct of inquiry for the determination of age of the JCL and examined the parents of the JCL as well as the principal of British Convent School, Yaripora, Kulgam with respect to the certificates issued regarding the DOB of the JCL.
