Boy accused of attacking woman told to launch ‘Save girls campaign’ in Bihar
THE BIZARRE ORDER WAS ISSUED BY JUVENILE COURT IN NALANDA DISTRICT
PATNA: A local court in Bihar has asked a juvenile delinquent to launch “Save girls, Teach girls” campaigns in the areas as a punishment for attacking a woman.
The bizarre order has been issued by a Juvenile court, Biharsharif in Nalanda district earlier this week.
According to reports, a woman was returning home from the local market in July 2013 when the accused along with other accomplices fired shots at her, wounding her badly. He also assaulted the villagers who came to her rescue.
Subsequently, a case was registered with the local police. During the trial of the case, the charges against the accused were proved after which the court ordered the former to launch campaigns to save girls for a full one month.
“The accused is doing graduation and has shown tremendous reforms in himself after the incident. In such a situation, it would not be judicious to disturb his study by sending him to jail,” juvenile court judge Manvendra Mishra ruled.
The accused has been told to launch social awareness campaigns such as celebrating the birth of girl child, stopping feticides and asking the villagers not to show discrimination towards girls.
He has also been told to make people know the prominent national personalities, such as Indira Gandhi, Lata Mangeshkar, PT Usha, Sarojini Naidu, Kalpana Cahwla, Bachhendri Pal and Marry Com are all women.
