Justice Mishra also directed Nalanda SP Hari Prasath S not to mention this case while issuing him a character certificate as any negative remarks will disqualify him from getting a job.
Assistant public prosecutor Rajesh Pathak said the boy, who was a minor at the time of the crime in 2018, had been made an accused along with four adults in a case of stealing articles, including calculator, sim cards, coupons, data cards, and charger from a shop at Hilsa in 2018.
He said since the boy has cleared the PT and main examination for recruitment as assistant sub-inspector recently, the JJB court absolved him of the charges.
Pathak said Justice Mishra observed that the boy, then a juvenile, might have been influenced by the adult accused in the case. He said the boy had not been named in any other criminal case.
