New Delhi: Delhi Chief Secretary M M Kutty today visited Asha Kiran Home to inspect arrangements at the shelter following reports of death of 11 inmates over the past two months.
The Chief Secretary along with Director (Social Welfare) visited the shelter in the morning and inspected the facilities being provided to the inmates.
Following the deaths, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had, earlier this week, directed Kutty to intervene immediately and set the situation right and file a report by February 13.
“I am extremely disturbed by the prevailing conditions reported by DCW and in the media on the home. Chief Secretary should personally ensure that all these deficiencies are removed within a week to the satisfaction of DCW,” Kejriwal had written in a note to Kutty.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has also directed officials concerned to submit footages of the CCTV cameras installed at Asha Kiran Home for the last 10 days.
