Recently three students of ECS Matriculation School, Chennai, who went to a summer camp, drowned in a village dam in Mulshi taluka near Pune. The three teenagers were part of a team of around 20 students along with four teachers in a weeklong vacation camp. 

 

The children entered the dam waters for a swim without having assessed the depth of the dam. The victims were identified as Danish Raja, K. Santosh and Sarvannan. Family of the deceased approached the District Legal Services Authority Friday morning with a representation seeking assistance from the authority. 

Immediately, Judge Jayanthi contacted the school management and summoned them. Judge Jayanthi spoke to the representatives and appealed to them to pay the compensation. She also narrated to them the ordeal both the family members and the school authorities would undergo in case a petition was filed.

 

Later, the management came forward to issue cheques for Rs 3 lakh compensation each to the family members. Barely two hours after receiving the representation, Judge Jayanthi had issued the compensation to the family members.

The judge also spoke to the Police Inspector in Mulshi taluka where the students had died and directed him to expedite procedure relating to the deaths and requested him to issue all the documents to the authority. State Human Rights Commission had earlier directed Principal Secretary, School Education Department, Director of Matriculation Education, Chennai and Principal, ECS Matriculation School, Chennai, to file reports relating to the incident.
