Two boys die in Panipat after allegedly eating mid-day meal, rights panel sends notice to top cop

New Delhi The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued a notice to the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police in Panipat in Haryana on the allegations that two minor boys died after consuming a mid-day meal at an Anganwadi centre.

"Panipat's deputy commissioner and superintendent of police have been asked to submit the report in four weeks over the death of two children after they ate a mid-day meal at an Anganwadi centre in village Pardhana," an NHRC official said.

The notice is returnable in four weeks.

The commission's directions are based on a complaint quoting media reports about the incident. The complainant has requested the commission's intervention, saying that no FIR has been registered in the matter.

The condition of two brothers - seven-year-old Sagar and for-year-old Raman - deteriorated after having the mid-day meal at the centre.

However, nothing happened to other children who ate the same meal. The incident occurred in March.
