Bring down age to 16 years for alll crimes.  Modern day maturity levels has drastically increased at very young age and the act needs changes immediately

Agree with the need to review/address juvenile law. The age bar should be brought down to 14 years. But should have a clause which says the nature/brutality of crime would also be considered which could result in the individual being tried as an adult. Psychopaths do exist, whether we like it or not.

If a person is old enough to rape or murder he is old enough to undergo trial for the crimes. Is that so difficult to understand Confused

I've heard of many cases where kids as young as 14 get tried as adults, depending on the crime. Whether they get convicted to an adult sentence is a different story. In the States at least, the crime is looked at to determine how to try someone. And that's how this juvenile in the rape case should be treated as well. His crime was a heinous one and he deserves no leniency. 

Kids mature and take part in adult activities at a younger age. There is a reason we have 13 year olds that are pregnant. Laws should generally reflect this change in the mindset of the youngsters. 

But once again, here is the justice system letting loopholes make it easier for the criminal, while having red tape to make it harder for the victim.

The juvenile board trying the sixth accused case in the gang rape case has turned down the petition to get the 17 year old criminal tried along with the other accomplices inspite of the heinous nature of his crimes Angry Ouch
The justice Verma report does not give much hope of bringing about any major changes Unhappy
