Respected Rammohan Garu,

Child Welfare Committee, 
Ananthapuram district.  

Ans.  ‘Age’ being crucial determining factor, Investigation officer/SJPU/Child Welfare Police Officer should follow Section 94 of Juvenile Justice Act-2015 for obtaining age proof (birth certificate from Panchayath/Municipal / School / Matriculation date of birth). In the absence of such record ossification test to be conducted by Forensic professional for age determination.

 Thanking you,
