NEW DELHI: A teenager, who allegedly ran over a 32-year-old marketing executive while driving his father’s Mercedes here in April, on Saturday sought copies of some “deficient and illegible” documents supplied to him with the charge sheet.
Additional sessions judge Vimal Kumar Yadav directed the Delhi Police investigating officer to supply the required documents to the youth’s counsel.
The court also fixed July 21 for hearing arguments on framing of charges against the youth in the case sent to it by the Juvenile Justice Board which had held that the boy be tried as an adult.
Arguments on appeal filed by the boy, who had turned major four days after the April 4 incident, challenging the Board’s order to try him as an adult would also be heard on July 21.
The boy along with his parents was present in the court during the proceedings.
During the hearing, advocate Rajiv Mohan, who appeared for the youth, said the court should hear arguments on his appeal and on framing charges simultaneously.
Special public prosecutor Atul Shrivastava said as per the amended Juvenile Justice Act, the sessions court could not send back the case to the board and if it thinks that the boy should not be tried as an adult.
