Delhi HC tells accused to plant trees as punishment

Two youngsters accused of keeping a minor girl in illegal confinement, physically assaulting her and not paying her any wages for household work she did were told by a court on Tuesday to plant 50 trees each – and pay the victim Rs 150,000.

According to Justice Najmi Waziri of the Delhi High Court, the punishment was meted out since the case was compoundable in nature and the parties had agreed for a settlement.

The order came while allowing a plea by the accused seeking the quashing of an FIR registered against them under the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act.
