    The Supreme Court today allowed the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) to deliver its verdict in the December 16 gangrape-cum-murder case involving a minor. The apex court, however, admitted a plea seeking fresh interpretation of the term 'juvenile' in the statute on the basis of mental and intellectual maturity of minor offenders instead of the age limit of 18 years while fixing their culpability.
