UPF Orphanage in India

From the Times of India:

COIMBATORE: In a curious case, the Coimbatore police has been rapped by a court here for prosecuting an eight-year-old boy on charges of selling drugs.

…According to Sections 82 and 83 of the Indian Penal Code, no case can be registered against boys less than 12 years of age. Following the magistrate’s observations, the police dropped the case against the boy and sent him to the Universal Peace Foundation’s home for orphans at Karumathampatti.
