Suspicious death of a 14 year old

Rajasthan PUCL is concerned about the death of 13 year old Rohitashwa under suspicious circumstances in the Kishor Sudhar Grah run buy the Social Welfare Department of the Rajasthan government in Sethi colony.

The department has announced an enquiry into the incident. The PUCL is concerned that it may turn out to be a near formality like previous such enquiries. Everyone knows the deplorable condition of the welfare homes. The PUCL is of the opinion that the enquiry should be entrusted to some institution like the Human Rights Commission and it should also cover the overall working condition of these Homes.
