MumbaiAs India celebrated the One Billion Rising movement to fight violence against women on February 14, three little sisters aged five, nine and 11, went missing from their home in a small Maharashtra village. Four days later, their dead bodies were found in a well on the outskirts of the village, next to a roadside dhaba or eatery.

Autopsies have confirmed that the three children were brutally raped and killed before their bodies were thrown into the well. In terrible irony, their tiny slippers were found next to empty liquor bottles. A shocking story of extreme poverty, hunger and assault has since come to light.

Police say the three fatherless children - whose mother works as a domestic help in Lakhni village of Bhandara district and was away from home - were hungry and left home on Thursday afternoon in search of food. They found their way to the dhaba, where they were brutally raped and murdered.
 






That evening, their mother filed a missing persons complaint with the police. When their bodies were discovered, the police reportedly said the children, driven by poverty and hunger, could have killed themselves. Local residents say it was only when they protested that autopsies were conducted on the bodies. The post-mortem reports confirmed horrific assault. 
 
The police have since registered a case of rape and murder and say investigations are on to trace the unidentified attackers. Rajendra Singh, Inspector General of Police, Nagpur Range told NDTV, "We have checked out 100 to 150 people and interrogated 10 to 15." Six-seven special teams have been formed to probe the incident, police sources have said.
 
Villagers, who are horrified at the three hungry children becoming easy prey to such brutal assault and murder, say they have complained about such dhabas which illegally serve liquor and attract "criminal elements."



Therefore it is a kind request please take appropriate action at earliest.

Thanking You

Sincerely Yours

Direction issued by the Commission
These proceedings shall be read in continuation of the earlier proceedings of the Commission dated 03.02.2017 where the Commission inter-alia observed and directed as under: “The complainant has alleged that leg of a nine-year old boy had to be amputated because of the negligence of the Ward Boy of District Hospital of Varanasi. Posing himself as the doctor he performed the surgery on the victim boy. In response to the Commission's directions, a report dated 08.03.2016 has been received from the Special Secretary, Government of Uttar Pradesh. It is reported that a three-member committee was constituted to enquire into the matter. The Ward Boy was, prima-facie, found responsible for the incident and he has been suspended. The Commission has considered the report. The nine-year old boy has been permanently disabled because of the negligence on the part of the Ward Boy of the hospital. The suspension of the Ward Boy substantiates the fact that he was responsible for the incident. The right to health of the victim boy has been violated and the Commission considers this a fit case for award the compensation. Issue notice u/s 18a(i) of the PHR Act, 1993 to the Chief Secretary, Govt. of Uttar Pradesh directing him to show cause within four weeks as to why the Commission should not recommend payment of compensation of Rs. 2,00,000/- to the nine-year old victim boy whose right to health has been violated.” In response to the Commission’s directions, a report dated 18.07.2017 has been received from Joint Secretary, Government of Uttar Pradesh. It is reported that the Department of Medical and Health has no objection if any compensation is paid to the victim Yash Choudhary @ Aakash Choudhary under the PHR Act, 1993. The Commission, therefore, recommends the Government of Uttar Pradesh, through the Chief Secretary, to pay a compensation of Rs. 2 lakh to the victim boy whose human rights were violated. He will submit Compliance Report along with proof of payment within four weeks.
