Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Three girls — aged eight, four and two years — who died in an east Delhi hospital, succumbed to ‘gross malnutrition’. Delhi government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the deaths, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia announced on twitter. While the children’s mother was found to be mentally unstable, their father, a rickshaw puller, has not returned home and efforts are on to find him.

Deputy commissioner of police (east) Pankaj Kumar Singh said the first autopsy report suggested that the children succumbed to health complications related to malnourishment and starvation. The initial post mortem at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital had also pointed to starvation as cause of deaths.
