Protect children from jail in Jammu & Kashmir


Children are treated as adults and detained without charge or trial in Kashmir.

Despite an obligation under international law to treat anyone below 18 as a child, police in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) continue to jail 16- and 17-year old boys as adults! Although India has amended its national juvenile justice law to make it consistent with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, boys above 16 are falling through the cracks in J&K’s juvenile justice laws.
