Delhi first Indian city with functional Children Courts

Delhi has become first city in India where 11 functional children courts have been set up. Purpose of these courts is to help expedite cases where children have been victims of criminal offence. These are different from Juvenile courts which are basically administrative courts where crimes have been committed by the minors.

These courts have come after a lot of struggle by Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) and intervention by the High Court. As per a report already 450 cases have been registered under these designated courts.
