HYDERABAD: In the wake of repeated incidents of children being mowed down by school buses, the State Human Rights Commission has sought a report from the district education officer and the transport commissioner by September 26.

The commission was responding to a petition filed by child rights activist Achyuta Rao with regard to the deaths of children due to the recklessness of school bus drivers. Pointing to the case of a 3-year-old schoolboy who was crushed to death, Rao said there was negligence on the part of school managements and this needed to be looked into.

In an another case, a woman alleged that her husband’s former employer colluded with the Nalgonda police to harass him after he resigned from his job. She stated in the petition that the employer developed a grudge against her husband who resigned as he wasn’t being paid wages on time. The police tortured him, she said, which led to his  hospitalisation. Responding to this petition, the commission sought a report from the Nalgonda police commissioner by September 27.
