The commission has noted that the allegations made in the media, if true, are a matter of human rights violations against the victim students, who were allegedly subjected to superstitious practises at a government-run school rather than being taken to a hospital for treatment by the school administration.

As a result, the Commission has sent a notice to the chief secretary of Uttar Pradesh, requesting a thorough report within four weeks. It is likely to list the steps that have been taken or will be taken to ensure that this type of incident will not happen again in the state, according to the report.

According to a December 21 media report, a video went viral in which the girls were being treated by an occultist; the police got the information immediately reached on the spot and chased him away after that, taking the ill students to the nearby health centre for treatment. The majority of them are between the ages of 9 and 13.

According to the statement, the villagers blamed their children’s illnesses on ghosts in the school.
