    There is no use blaming politics here... It is a parenting issue... We parents must be watchful of activities of our children... During growing years early signs are evident and sometimes inspired by parents' actions... Always watch the friendships developed by the kid... It is the influence of bad friends which will shatter child's future unless nipped in the bud...

    For major offenses like rape , murder , assault etc . no body should be treated as minors. Now a days such incidents by so called minors are on the rise. Just treat them as criminals and apply all the rules to prosecute them. Soft corner to such criminals will lead them to become hardcore criminals when they grow up.

    R.Rodrigues Mumbai,here blaming govt is total wrong.Blame their parents OK.Parents have to see what their offspring make.Give them some work to do instead of sitting with mobile whole day.Let them help at home in their way .Where they go and do ,parents should know.Mobile is to be given after certain age block all sides where crimes and these assault sides.It is in your hand to control what they make.In case something is done question,them and make them to repent or go make them to reverse back,a certain amount of fine like less money is given or consequences to it be made.In remand home ?when back sure it repeats again.
