  • The prosecution case is that the petitioner had sexually assaulted another boy

  • Counsel for petitioner submitted that prosecution of a child for an offence under the POCSO Act or sexual offences under the IPC was not possible as much as the offender, being a child, could not be attributed with the criminal intent

  • Therefore, the investigation against the petitioner was illegal.
