CJI Chandrachud Stresses Long-term Impact of Childhood Treatment on Juvenile Justice Reform

Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud emphasized the profound impact of childhood experiences on the psyche during a keynote address at the National Symposium on Juvenile Justice in Nepal. Recalling his own encounter with corporal punishment at school, the CJI highlighted the lasting imprint such treatment can leave on children’s lives.

Reflecting on his personal experience of being caned for a minor infraction, despite pleading to be punished differently, CJI Chandrachud underscored the enduring emotional and physical effects of such incidents. He emphasized the importance of sensitivity and reform-oriented approaches in dealing with children in conflict with the law or victims of various crimes.

Addressing the complexities of juvenile justice, the CJI referred to a recent case involving a minor rape victim seeking permission for abortion. He stressed the need for a nuanced understanding of juvenile justice beyond legal frameworks and highlighted challenges posed by digital platforms, inadequate infrastructure, and socio-economic factors.

In conclusion, CJI Chandrachud emphasized the need for comprehensive strategies focusing on prevention, intervention, and rehabilitation to address juvenile delinquency effectively and foster a more inclusive society that nurtures every child’s potential.
