Delhi is grappling with a disturbing surge in juvenile crime marked by an alarming inclination towards violence among young offenders. In a ghastly incident, a 17-year-old boy was brutally stabbed over 70 times during a street robbery in November. The accused minor, known for sharing videos projecting a criminal image on social media, was later seen callously dancing over the victim’s body in a disturbing display.
This shocking event follows earlier cases, including a minor stabbing a 16-year-old over personal enmity and another juvenile stabbing a man to death allegedly for harassing his girlfriend.
The trend is sparking concerns about the factors contributing to such violent behavior among youngsters, prompting a deeper exploration of the root causes behind the rising wave of juvenile violence in the national capital.
