There have been instances officially when the Offender has been deemed to be a juvenile with retrospective effect and tried under the Juvenile Justice Act. It depends on the type and intensity of the crime committed by your friend. However, you can also note that Section 7A of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 permits an accused person to raise the “claim of juvenility” before “any court, at any stage, even after the final disposal of the case”.
