The Uttar Pradesh government had decided to give Rs 2 lakh for each family who lost their children in the serial killing incident in Noida. In the reaction, seven of the eight families of victims had returned their compensation cheques to government.
In the further development, a plea has been filed in the Supreme Court and the court may have declined to entertain a plea seeking CBI inquiry into the gruesome serial killings at Nithari village in Noida. However, the Central government has constituted a high-level inquiry committee to investigate the gruesome murders.
The joint secretary in Women and Child Development Ministry, Manjula Krishnan, will be the chairperson of the inquiry committee. The committee would look into the negligence by the local administration. It would be said to submit its report within 15 days.
Manjula Krishnan said that we will suggest preventive measures to avoid such happenings in future. Yesterday was the fifth day since skeletons of children, sexually assaulted and butchered to death were unearthed from Noida’s Sector 31 house.
According to the police, as many as 22 bodies have been recovered from the house until yet. There is also a speculation for a possible organ trade behind the incident but the police have not confirmed it yet.
Meerut DIG Shailendra Pratap Singh said that
we are not ruling out any angle. We are collecting evidence to probe all possible angles.
The Chief Justice of India Designate Gopinathan Balakrishanan, the political parties such as Congress, BJP, have also expressed their concern over the incident. On the other hand, the National Human Rights Commission has been issued notices to the Chief Secretary of Uttar Pradesh too.
