New Delhi: Days after the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) held sixth accused of December 16 gang rape case as minor, a petition has been moved in the Supreme Court seeking a punishment for him similar to that which will be handed out to his other five accomplices.
The petitioner has pleaded that juveniles accused of rape and murder should be tried under normal law instead of Juvenile laws.

The petitioner has also demanded that the Juvenile Justice Act should be struck down when it seems to be violating article 14 and 21 of the Constitution.

After hearing the petitioner, the Supreme Court said that the matter could be listed for hearing.
