Srinagar: Two 12-year-old boys were on Friday granted bail by a local court here while another was remanded to a juvenile home after they were detained by Jammu and Kashmir police last month on the charge of stone-pelting.

Mohsin Majeed Shah and Burhan Nazir, both born in 1999, were lodged in the Maharaj Gunj police station here before being shifted to Juvenile home following the court directions earlier this week.

"Mohsin and Burhan have been granted the bail," Mohsin's counsel said.

While Mohsin was granted bail by the Second Additional Session Judge, Burhan was granted bail by the Principal Session Judge at the Saddar Court Complex here.

"Burhan was booked under section 152, which deals with the Special Offences and only the Principal Sessions Judge could deal with these cases. The judge granted interim bail keeping in view the age of the detainee. Burhan is only 12", advocate Nazir Ahmad Ronga, who pleaded Burhan's case, said.

Another minor, Sajjad, was remanded to Juvenile home till November 9, a lawyer said.
