Minor rape case: Govt seeks action against senior officers

New Delhi, Sep 11 (PTI) The Delhi government has sought suspension of the casualty medical officer of the Chacha Nehru hospital and disciplinary action against its director over “grave negligence” in connection with the case of rape of a minor in a school, its health minister today said.

A five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a peon inside the premises of a private school in Shahdara in east Delhi on Saturday, according to police.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said the city government has written to Lt Governor Anil Baijal in this connection.

“Delhi government recommended suspension of the casualty medical officer of the Chacha Nehru super speciality hospital and disciplinary action against its director,” he told reporters.

Jain said he has also directed the DGHS to inquire into the incident. The preliminary report with the aforementioned recommendations was submitted today, he said.

“The casualty medical officer did not follow the laid down norms or protocols pertaining to a victim of rape,” Jain alleged.

The victim should have been treated in the hospital itself and should not have been referred to LNJP Hospital, he said.

However, LNJP Hospital treated the victim well and she was released the next morning, the minister said.

“Even while referring, a CATS ambulance should have been used and a woman doctor or an attendant should have accompanied the victim.

“There was grave negligence on the part of the casualty medical officer and the director,” he said.

The accused, Vikas (40), was arrested last night, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Shahdara, Nupur Prasad said.

The incident came a day after a seven-year-old boy’s throat was slit allegedly by a bus conductor of a Gurgaon school for allegedly resisting sexual assault — an incident that sent shock waves across the country.

7 Lok Sabha MPs, 98 MLAs Under Scanner For ‘Substantial Increase’ in Assets, Government Tells SC

New Delhi, Sept 11: The government on Monday informed the Supreme Court that ‘substantial increases’ in assets of seven Lok Sabha parliamentarians and 98 state lawmakers are under scanner. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) told the apex court that it will share the list of names of those seven MPs and 98 MLAs whom assets are being investigated in a sealed cover on September 12.

The CBDT said it found that there had been “huge” increases in the Lok Sabha MPs’ assets and “substantial” increases in MLAs’ assets after preliminary investigations into their assets. A probe was launched after a Lucknow-based NGO, ‘Lok Prahari’, alleged a significant increase in the assets of 26 Lok Sabha MPs, 11 Rajya Sabha MPs and 257 MLAs, as was reflected in their election affidavits.

The CBDT informed that the inquiry is underway by the Income Tax department against 20 MPs including nine Lok Sabha members and 42 MLAs. The NGO Lok Prahari had released a list of 37 MPs including 11 Rajya Sabha members and 257 MLAs alleging that their election affidavits show a significant increase in their assets.

Earlier on September 6, the Supreme Court asked the Central government to place before it details of the steps it had taken to verify the sources of income of lawmakers whose assets increased many folds in just one term as elected representatives. The court query came as the Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) had cited the instances of four law makers whose assets have increased by 1,200 per cent or more, and another 22 law makers whose assets recorded an increase of 500 per cent.
