New Delhi: Fifteen to twenty juvenile delinquents today escaped from the Boys Observation Home in Mukherjee Nagar, Delhi, after a section of the inmates resorted to arson and clashes.


The Home houses nearly 180 juvenile delinquents. The home is run under the supervision of a Metropolitan Magistrate.

Delhi Police officials said, they were ready to intervene but under the Juvenile Justice Act, policemen are barred from entering juvenile remand homes.

The Deputy Commissioner said, 15 to 20 boys escaped in the melee. Private security guards had been posted at the Boys' remand home, but they failed to prevent the arsonists from escaping.

Details are awaited.
