of the city government to know what steps will be taken to
protect children`s rights," DCPCR Chairperson Amodh Kanth said.

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.
