Cybercrime: Nations must work together to tackle juvenile cybercrime: CJI | India News | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

New Delhi: Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud on Saturday expressed concern over growing footprint of juveniles in cybercrime and suggested that countries and their agencies should cooperate to deal with the problem.

Speaking at a National Symposium on Juvenile Justice organised in Nepal, Justice Chandrachud said that specific training programmes should be evolved by incorporating principles of trauma-informed care and by emphasising sensitivity and empathy towards juvenile offenders who may have experienced adverse experiences in life. “The changing nature of crimes, particularly with the increasing prevalence of digital crime, poses new challenges for juvenile justice systems globally. Recent data from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in India, unveiled last month, paints a concerning picture regarding cybercrimes. In 2022, the reported number of cases (involving juveniles) surged from 345 to 685 compared to 2021, nearly doubling within a year,” the CJI, who is the first CJI to visit Nepal in his official capacity, said.

He said there is a need for proactive measures to educate and safeguard young individuals in the digital age. The CJI said juvenile justice systems must adapt by enhancing international cooperation mechanisms and sharing best practices to address the transnational nature of digital crimes.
