HYDERABAD: Six days after Hyderabad Police closed the case of 13-year-old Aradhana Samdariya, who died after fasting for 68 days in October 2016, stating lack of evidence pointing to negligence of parents, a magistrate bench at the 10th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate at Secunderabad ordered for the final report from the police.


This was directed after city-based child rights NGO, Balala Hakkula Sangham (BHS), along with Damodar Reddy, High Court advocate filed a protest petition at the court. “The final report has to be filed by the police at the court.

They have to intimate the complainant while submitting the report. We looked in the court, but the report has not been filed yet.

The magistrate has directed police to file it by April 26,” informed Damodar. Achyuta Rao from BHS said that a lot of questions about the child’s health remained unanswered and the case needs to be probed further.
