New Delhi: There has been a 132 per cent rise in incidents of crime committed by juveniles against women in 2013 over the previous year, Lok Sabha was told on Tuesday.

Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said this quoting the data available with the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).

He said the Ministry of Women and Child Development has recently introduced the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill, 2014 in Lok Sabha which contains both punitive and reformative measures for children in conflict with the law.

"The objective of the bill is therefore to provide both deterrent and reformative options for overall development of children," he said in a written reply.
