Some serious thoughts have been put by the Government after the Nirbhaya Case.
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister flagged the problem by raising the point as to how many of the parents question their sons of the activities they indulge in and their late comings to home etc.
Within the framework of the constitution some sort of responsibility of parents of juveniles into the punishment for the crimes could be seriously considered.
