A very unusual order was passed by the juvenile court in Sheikhpura District, Patna Bihar on Saturday. The court of Jigar Shah has asked a minor to teach Dalit children after he was convicted for getting involved in illicit liquor trade in Bihar.

The court, after taking into consideration both the age and nature of the crime of the accused ordered him to serve patients at the government hospital for six months and also to impart education to Dalit children.

The minor will have to teach Dalit students from his village for two hours a day in the evening for three months. Also, simultaneously, he will also have to serve patients admitted to the physiotherapy department of the local government hospital.

During the trial, the minor confessed his guilt and promised not to repeat the mistake in future.

The accused hails from Baruna village of the Buxar district in Bihar. He was caught running an illegal brewing centre. The government enforced a statewide liquor prohibition last year with support from all political parties.

As per the PTI, Additional Prosecutor AK Dubey said that the police had busted an illegal liquor manufacturing unit under Ariyari police station. Investigations revealed that the unit was run by the juvenile convict.

Last month, the juvenile court in Bihar had asked a delinquent to wipe the floors of Temple for six months as a punishment for working for Maoist army and opening fire on the police.


The Logical Indian Take

It is a welcome step taken by the court. Education is the key to decreasing the cycle of crime as it allows the accused to learn from their mistakes and have a better chance at life. Two purposes will be solved when the accused imparts education- first; the accused understands the importance of studies and career. Secondly, it increases the knowledge of the teacher as they have to do research before teaching.

Instead of filling prisons with people who have their whole life ahead, it is a good option to give them a second chance to teach children and serve society.
