Chandigarh, December 11

A 15-year-old student of DPS, Gurugram, took the Haryana Human Rights Commission (HHRC) for a ride as he complained of torture by his parents, but during police inquiry he said he was just trying to authenticate what was mentioned in his NCERT book on legal recourse to human rights violation.

A resident of Sector 85 of Gurugram, the student approached the Commission on April 18 through the online mode, where he complained of being tortured by his parents.

He alleged that his mother had threatened to kill him and he had been physically, mentally and emotionally abused. He even went on to say that he had not attempted suicide as it was against the law. “Please save me. I need help!” he said.

Taking notice of the complaint, the HHRC marked a police inquiry. During the police investigation, the boy made a statement that he had read in his NCERT book that in case there was a violation of human rights of a person, one could make a complaint to the Human Rights Commission.

In order to authenticate the fact, he made a complaint to the HHRC. He also mentioned that he was living happily in his house and no one was torturing him.

Disposing of the case, Haryana Human Rights Commission chairperson Justice SK Mittal and member Justice KC Puri observed that the juvenile "was trying to test the activeness and vigilance of the panel due to which he filed a complaint alleging that his mother had physically, mentally and emotionally abused him".
