Crime-Juvenile delinquency

Juvenile crime is on alarming increase. Latest victim being Mukim Khan, 17, and accused being Amir Shaikh and Sarfaraz Shaikh, just 19 & 17 respectively. This is not an isolated case, it is one among several others.

It is reported that the accused said during interrogation that they had committed the crime as they wanted money to bribe someone to pass their HSC exams. There lies the point. Who is that someone? The boys should know. Both media and police should go after that someone. Though that person is not directly connected to either kidnap or murder, he is equally responsible, in fact more so, for the crime committed. That someone demanded money from the boys knowing fully well how young the boys were, that they could not lay their hands on that kind of money without committing some kind of crime. The police should seek that person. He should be put to trial before the boys. In a way, he instigated the two young minds to commit that crime. Had he not offered to pass them in exchange for money, probably the crime would not have been committed and Mukim would be alive today.
