Juvenile ‘detained’

A 17-year-old juvenile has been allegedly detained by the Railway police since January 26, accusing him of being a robber.

Global Concerns India and Sichrem, two organisations working on human rights issues, on Monday took up the matter with the police and have lodged a complaint with Karnataka State Human Rights Commission.

“They cannot lodge a juvenile in a station, they are supposed to keep him/her at an observation home. However, the police have kept the boy at the station since January 26, despite there being no official complaint or a first information report,” Manohar, a member of Sichrem said.

The boy, hailing from Bihar, used to sell mobile phone pouches. On January 14, he had visited Vijayawada and returned to Bangalore on January 26, when he was detained by the police.
