11-Year-old girl starved to death as family didn't have Aadhar-linked ration cards
Jharkhand, Oct 17 (ANI): An 11-year-old girl allegedly died of starvation after going without food for several days. The incident took place after the girl from Jharkhand's Simdega district didn't receive ration under PDS due to non-linking of Aadhaar. The victim's mother said she went to get rice and was told that no ration will be given to her. She expressed her pain and said that her daughter died saying 'Bhat-bhat'. Activists had placed a request for a new card explaining the circumstances, but the card arrived two weeks after Santoshi's death.
