Supreme Court order: 'Criminal mistake' in minor state cannot be a hindrance in job

New Delhi: Recently, the Supreme Court has said that the charge of tampering in the minor state cannot be a hindrance in the government job. Ordered to give a job. A bench of Justice UU Lalit and Justice Vineet Sharan said that Pramod (name changed) was a minor at the time he was accused. Also, he was later discharged. The bench said that even if convicted, it cannot become an obstacle in the way of his job as he was a minor at the time of the incident. Citing the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, the bench said that if a minor is convicted, he too becomes a minor. So that he does not have the stain of being a criminal. Such an arrangement has been made to return the minor to the society like normal people. Also, the bench also found that the candidate had not even tried to hide about the case.

This was the case: According to information received from sources, in March 2015, Staff Selection Commission had invited applications for the recruitment of Sub Inspector in CISF. Pranod was finally selected in this exam and in September 2016 he was offered an appointment. At the same time, in the appointment form, he told that he had a case of molestation, but he was acquitted of the charge. So the matter went to the Standing Screening Committee. The committee considered Pramod not suitable for this job due to a criminal case being filed.

The High Court gave the order to give the job: Sources say that Pramod challenged it in the Rajasthan High Court and the court ordered the government to consider it. The committee once again found Pramod not suitable for the job, which Pramod again challenged in the High Court. A single bench of the High Court, while giving the verdict in favor of Pramod, ordered the job. The government challenged this order of a single bench, but the petition was dismissed. After this, a special permission petition was filed by the state government in the Supreme Court.
