Chhaya Mishra, senior advocate of Patna High Court, has expressed grief over the Ankita murder case of Jharkhand.

Patna: The incident of burning a minor school girl Ankita Kumari Singh to death in Dumka, Ranchi has once again reminded of the Nirbhaya case. Chhaya Mishra, senior female advocate of Patna High Court and former joint secretary of Advocates Association, has expressed grief over this heinous incident. Chhaya Mishra said that Ankita's father has accused the doctors of Ranchi of being negligent. Ankita could not be sent to Delhi for better treatment. Which is a serious question. He said that the girl Ankita did not get justice at the first step itself.

Commission's recommendations were not implemented

Advocate Chhaya Mishra said that the recommendations of Justice JS Verma Commission are not being implemented in the same manner in Bihar and Jharkhand. 3000 crores are deposited in Nirbhaya Fund. In both these states, the amount is not being properly utilized. Chhaya Mishra said that only Rs 11 lakh was spent from the fund in Jharkhand. Jharkhand has proved to be laggy here too. He said that women are being tortured in Jharkhand by telling them witches. One stop center has been opened in Ranchi. Which almost proved unsuccessful.


Jharkhand is also behind in installing CCTV cameras

Chhaya Mishra told that a few years ago in Dhanbad, Jharkhand, miscreants threw acid on the face of a college student. Due to which the girl was seriously burnt. Jharkhand has also proved to be laggy in the matter of installation of Regency Response Support System and CCTV cameras. The situation in Bihar is also bad in the case of Nirbhaya Fund. He said that Bihar has already become infamous in the case of shelter homes in Muzaffarpur and Gaighat Patna. Despite this, the work of installing CCTV, Emergency Response Support System is very slow.


Ankita case to be heard in fast track court

The senior female advocate further said that Rs 12.21 crore was fixed for the support system in Bihar. But till now not even a single penny has been spent. He said that the state government should be sensitive and properly use the Nirbhaya fund to provide relief to the victim girl child. Apart from this, he demanded that the case of Ankita's murder should be registered under the POCSO Act. Because Ankit was a minor. Apart from this, the matter should be heard in the fast track court so that the girl can get justice.
