A Class 9 boy found dead in a school toilet, a school principal shot dead, a Class 1 boy stabbed by a senior girl - the last few weeks have jolted the conscience of the Indian society with the sheer number of crimes that have seen minors as perpetrators. On this episode of We The People, we ask: What has brought on this sudden spurt in juvenile crimes in the country? Have schools ceased to be the safe places for children where they must fear their own peers? What drives criminality in young minds? Is an increase in juvenile crimes symbolic of a systematic failure of the country's social structure?
