New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) has written to the city government enquiring about the quantum of help doled out to the injured children in last week's building collapse incident.

"We have written to women and child development department, child welfare committees and education department of the city government to know what steps will be taken to protect children's rights," DCPCR Chairperson Amodh Kanth said.

An expert team visited the site in Laxmi Nagar on Tuesday, a day after the incident following which notices were sent to various government agencies, he said, adding, authorities have also been asked to look after children inhabiting in the "dangerous" buildings in east Delhi.

MCD had earlier served vacation notices to 38 buildings following the incident in which a four-storey residential structure caved in at Lalita Park in Laxmi Nagar killing 70 people, including 16 children.

Delhi government is expected to reply to the notices within two weeks, he said.
