Nagpur: Dr. Mukesh Chandak’s yearning of watching all three involved in his eight year old son’s murder, including a minor, to be sternly penalised got flogged when the convicted was sent on probation for two years by Juvenile Justice Board. Dr. Chandak was anticipating harsher sentence.
17 year old while committing the diabolic crime, the minor has now attained an age of 20. He has been held guilty and booked for murder and emanation of conspiracy. District Child Protection unit will be overseeing the convict.
The board has also asked the DCPU to prepare a special care plan programme for the convict.
He has been also asked to serve the community for eight hours every month. The Juvenile Court held him guilty under Section 363 (kidnapping), 364-A (kidnapping for ransom) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code for his involvement in assisting and aiding Rajesh Daware and Arvind Singh.
In view of the fact that he was 17 years old at the time of offence, he could not be prosecuted before the Sessions Court and the matter was, thus, placed before the Juvenile Court, which also found him guilty. However, according to Section 18 (g) of Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, Board can direct the child to be sent to a special home, for such period, not exceeding three years, as it thinks fit, for providing reformative services including education, skill development, counselling, behaviour modification therapy, and psychiatric support during the period of stay in the special home.
The other two perpetrators have already been imposed death penalty.
