New Delhi: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Thursday issued a notice to Uttar Pradesh Police over alleged tardy investigation into the mysterious death of an MBBS student at a private college in Moradabad town.

The Commission has issued a notice to Moradabad SSP on a complaint of slow investigation into the death of Neeraj Bhadana, a first year MBBS student at Teerthankar Mahavir College, an NHRC statement said.
The girl was found dead in her hostel on July 6. The SSP has been given four weeks time to respond to the notice.

The complainant, advocate Sunil Kumar Bainsla, has alleged as per the postmortem report of the victim, she was strangulated but so far there is no progress in the police investigation and the delay may allow the culprits to escape, the statement said.
The complainant has also requested the Commission to issue guidelines for the safety of students, especially girls, studying in private colleges.
