HC notice to Delhi government on plea for Rs 1 crore compensation for 9-year-old boy’s death

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has sought city government’s reply on a plea seeking compensation of Rs one crore for the death of a nine-year-old boy who fell into an uncovered pit of an underground water reservoir in a park. Justice Rajiv Shakdher issued notice to Delhi government, Delhi Fire Services (DFS) and Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (DSIDC) seeking their replies on the plea moved by the child’s father who has alleged negligence on the part of the authorities.

The court has listed the matter for further hearing on September 29. Naval Kishore Shah contended that due to the “negligence” of the government and its authorities in not keeping the pit covered, his son fell into it and died on April 30. He sought directions to the authorities to cover all open pits across Delhi so that such an incident does not happen again.
