Mysuru, November 14:- “Youths should take the initiative to curb crime in the society,” said retired Chief Justice of Kerala High Court S R Bannurmath.
He was speaking after inaugurating a two-day National Conference on ‘Multi dimensional approach to criminal justice system in India’ at JSS Law College (Autonomous) at Kuvempunagar in the city on Wednesday.
“Criminals need to be counselled so that they won’t take to crime again. Unfortunately a rape or crime takes place in India every 20 minutes. It is a dangerous development. Whenever a crime takes place, it should be informed to police immediately. But the people are informing the media instead of police. If the media persons arrive at the spot before the police, evidences may get tampered. It may help the criminals to escape. Youths should educate the society on such incidents,” he added.
Retired District Judge I S Antony, District Judges Mohan Sripada Sankoli, S R Somashekar and CEO of JSS Law College Prof K S Suresh were present. (KS, NGB)
