Aakriti Bhatia death: Fix school’s liability, says HC
Expressing dissatisfaction over the delay on the part of the Delhi government and the Delhi Police in constituting a medical board, Justice S Muralidhar allowed the plea of the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR), which had moved a writ petition seeking the court’s intervention in determining the liability of the school.
The final report on the school’s liability may be submitted in a month, after which the police and other government authorities will take action as per the court’s order.
“This court is of the view that if the matter is delayed any longer, it would serve no purpose. A direction is issued to the Director General of Health Services (DGHS) to constitute a medical board of three experts within 10 days from today. The opinion of the board will be rendered within three weeks. The officer will take the necessary steps on the basis of the board’s opinion, which will be communicated to the DCPCR within two weeks,” stated the order.
Justice Muralidhar further directed the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) to co-ordinate with the DGHS to ensure compliance with the court orders.
