Govt orders probe into deaths due to starvation claims

initial postmortem report attributed it to malnourishment/starvation

With the outcry over starvation deaths of three girls in national capital, the central government has ordered an inquiry.

Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan made the announcement today.

It need be mentioned that three sisters, aged two, four and eight, were found dead in east Delhi’s Mandawali area.

The initial postmortem report attributed it to “malnourishment/starvation and its complications”, prompting the city government to order a magisterial probe into the matter.

Meanwhile, official sources refuted claims by some AAP leaders that the state government’s proposed doorstep delivery of ration scheme would have averted such a tragedy.

The AAP government has been alleging that the Lieutenant Governor, a central government’s appointee, is not allowing it to implement the scheme.
