Mohali: Teen guilty of rape to perform community service at old age home
A teenager found guilty of raping a minor has been directed to perform community service at an old age home in Mohali, said Mohali juvenile justice board’s order.
The boy will perform community service from 9am to 2pm for five days a week for the next six months, the justice board’s order said.
Sources said the boy will have to report at the old age home at 9am and perform various duties, including gardening, helping the staff in taking care of the elderly and cleaning.
Fifteen years old at the time of the crime, the boy was arrested along with an adult for raping a Class 9 student in 2015.
The victim had gone to a function at Manuli village in Mohali when the accused kidnapped her on a two-wheeler and raped her at a secluded area in Sector 82.
They later dumped her near a gurdwara in the village and fled.
While the other accused had already been convicted of rape, the juvenile justice board has passed the order now. The boy has already stayed at a children’s reformation home for about a year.
