Outstanding Judgement of Child Welfare Committee, Khurda of Odisha

Outstanding Judgement of Child Welfare Committee, Khurda of Odisha to ensure and enforce protection of Children- A  Big Slap  on the Face of Odisha Child Rights Commission

On 13.2.16, while disposing a Complaint Case No. 279/2016  filed by Pradip Pradhan, Odisha Soochana Adhikar Abhijan vs  Principal  of Bhubaneswar Model Public School @ Takshila School, N5/A, 1698, IRC Village, Bhubanneswar-15,  District Child Welfare Committee, Khurda ( A Bench of Judicial Magistrate  ( First Class)  had  issued order to so many authorities  i.e, the Principal of the School, District Education Officer, Khurda, Director,  CBSE, New Delhi, District Child Protection Officer, Khurda, Secretary, Department of School  and Mass Education, Govt. of Odisha,   to take immediate measures  to  get the two Children  Suchismita Nayak  and Srikant Auropratik restored back to  Class-IX in the School and initiate legal action against the authority of the School as per section 17(1) of Right to Education Act and the school authority to be  liable for  punishment  u/s 17 (2) of the Act and  section 23  of  Juvenile  Justice ( Care and Protection of Children ) Act 2000. CBSE, New Delhi  has also been directed to allow Srikant Auropratik  of the School to  register for HSC examination  in 2016-17 academic year.   

This Complaint Case  was  filed in CWC, Khurda in the backdrop of failure of Odisha Child Rights Commission to ensure justice to    Srikant Auropratik, student of Class-IX  who was tortured, physically harassed and  forcibly driven out  by the Principal of Bhubaneswar Model School.  On 3.11.15, the Parents approached the Odisha Child Rights Commission by filling complaints levelling details of allegation, mental torture, and harassment caused to their son and seeking quick justice for their child.   OSCPCR   registered the case (Case No.-810/15 )  on 4.11.15, initiated the enquiry and  conducted hearing  twice and remained silence for  unknown period  without giving any final decisionEven the Commission did not provide the proceedings of the hearing  making it complete farce.   Being pretty aware  about  unholy alliance  between  Odisha Child Rights Commission and   the School Authority and the Commission working under the influence of vested groups, Sri Pradip Pradhan filed the case in Child Welfare Committee, Khurda on 9.1.2016  with prayer for immediate relief to the Children.

The Child Welfare Committee, Khurda  has observed that  both the Children Srikant and Suchismita are the victims of  the wilful mental violence of the school authority  and are compelled  to be out of the school. The School Authority  has wilfully neglected  both the children which caused these children  unnecessary mental suffering  and caused Srikant physically suffering.

We are still waiting  the order of Odisha Child Rights Commission  which claims a competent  authority  to provide protection to the Children. The process has been initiated to monitor the functioning  of Odisha Child Rights Commission through RTI which will be exposed very soon.

Pradip Pradhan
