ADITYA DEV / TIMES OF INDIA, GURGAON
GURGAON: A team of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) visited the home of 8-year-old Usman (name changed) at Suratpur on Thursday. The five-member-team headed by V K Tikko found serious lapses in the way Usmans medical test was done on Wednesday.
NCPCR officials sent Usman to civil hospital for further tests and treatment. The childs condition was stated to be serious as he could be suffering from rabies due to attack by the pet dog of the house owner. Usman couldnt speak properly due to the injuries on his face.
Tikko directed city administration to bear all the medical expenses and ensure that the child was given proper care. Another NCPCR member said that a counselor should be provided to understand the mental trauma of the child.
Ironically, the officer who had done Usmans medical tests on Wednesday declared his condition as normal. However, the same medical officer contradicted in his report by saying that Usman needed rabies injection. NCPCR team found that guidelines of Juvenile Justice Act were not followed in the case. Many faults are coming to our notice. Our team is investigating the case and we would come out with concrete observations by Friday evening, Tikko added.
Earlier, the NCPCR team met the Gurgaon additional deputy commissioner and summoned district child welfare officer and investigation officials in the case. An action taken report was demanded in the case.
