The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notices to the Uttar Pradesh Government's chief secretary and Lalitpur district magistrate to submit a detailed report into the allegations that due to severe drought in the district, a number of cases of starvation have been reported over the months and some families have sold or mortgaged their children for a small sum of money for their survival.


The commission has given four weeks time to submit a report. The commission has also directed its Director General (Investigation) to send a team for an on-the-spot investigation into these very serious allegations and submit a report within two weeks.

The commission took cognizance of the issue on the basis of a complaint which also carried a number of news clippings on the plight of poor people including those belonging to Saharia Tribe in the district.
