My friend was 17 years old at date of occurrence

My friend was 17 years old when he commented on a Facebook post. FIR under section 66A, 153A & 506 RPC was loged in Police station. Now after 6 years police will file challan in Court and my friend is 23 now.

Is he will be treated as Jevenile or Adult. We are from Jammu and Kashmir and minor age is 18 here.

Juvenile age increase to 18 yrs has a retrospective effect: JK High Court

Dear querist,


He will be treated as per his age at the time of commission of offence.
