New Delhi: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will form a special task force to look into the issue of children's safety at schools.
The proposal comes in view of the death of a six-year old boy in a South Delhi school in January.
The responsibility of this task force would be to ensure water tanks, sewage tanks etc are properly covered so as to avoid accidents. They would also make sure that open wires did not lie around in the vicinity of the schools, India Today reported.
The members of the task force will also supervise in case of any construction work in schools.
There would be many teams in the task force, which will be deployed according to the zones, the report said citing officials.
On January 30, Divyansh, a class I student of Ryan International School in south Delhi's Vasant Kunj area was found dead after allegedly drowning in a water tank inside the school premises.
