“Panipat’s deputy commissioner and superintendent of police have been asked to submit the report in four weeks over the death of two children after they ate a mid-day meal at an Anganwadi centre in village Pardhana,” an NHRC official said.

The notice is returnable in four weeks.

The commission’s directions are based on a complaint quoting media reports about the incident. The complainant has requested the commission’s intervention, saying that no FIR has been registered in the matter.

The condition of two brothers — Sagar, seven, and Raman, four — deteriorated after they allegedly ate their mid-day meal.

However, nothing happened to other children who ate the same meal. The incident occurred in March.
