The child in conflict with law (accused) has to contest as juvenile through a local prudent lawyer.

You have not posted the complete facts.

As per your concerned query!

The Juvenile Justice Act, which allows children aged 16 to 18 years and in conflict with the law to be tried as adults in cases of heinous offences.

The law is well settled that 'conscious possession' is a core ingredient to establish the guilt for the offences punishable under section 25 of the Arms Act.

A mere consciousness cannot continue qua the petitioner under the Arms Act, 1959.

However, if it is not proved, then the court may take a lenient view to secure the ends of justice.

Hope it is helpful!
