By showing leniency on age ground alone, we should not breed a criminal. A recent study has shown a spurt in crimes by juveniles after the age has been raised to 18 from 16.

I think it is correct. They may not be treated for entering into an agreement and vote before 18; but they are good to commit such crime. A boy of 15, who can molest a g....... ir. l is not different and equal to any grown up man.
