Adult to be committed to sessions in a case to be committed to sessions
8. (1) When a child is accused along with an adult of having committed an offence and it appears to the Court taking cognizance of the offence that the case is a fit one for committal to the Court of Session, such Court shall, after separating the case in respect of the child from that in respect of the adult, direct that the adult alone be committed to the Court of Session for trial.
(2) The case in respect of the child shall then be transferred to a Juvenile Court if there is one or to a Court empowered under section 4, if there is no Juvenile Court for the local area, and the Court taking cognizance of the offence is not so empowered:
Provided that the case in respect of the child shall be transferred to the Court of Session under section 5 (3) if it is exclusively triable by the Court of Session in accordance with the Second Schedule of the Code.
