Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court served notices to Punjab government and Orbit Aviation Ltd in connection with the molestation and death of a 13 year old girl at Moga in Punjab.
The minor girl died after she and her mother were allegedly pushed off a moving bus on the Moga-Bathinda highway on April 29. The incident led to widespread outrage and a ban on the Orbit Company’s buses by the Punjab government.
The high court also sought details of buses owned by the state government, private-run buses and their ownership pattern. The court asked the details to be submitted by May 15.
Earlier, the Parkash Singh Badal government ordered a judicial probe into the incident. The judicial commission of inquiry will be headed by former chief justice of Kerala High Court VK Bali.
