The Delhi government has ordered an inquiry into the death of the 17-year-old Aakriti Bhatia who succumbed to an asthma attack during school hours three days ago.

"An enquiry was ordered into the incident on Wednesday night. The report will be submitted within three days," a senior education department official told IANS on Thursday.

Aakriti, a Class 12 student of Modern School Vasant Vihar in south Delhi, had suffered an asthma attack in school on Monday and died on the way to the hospital.

Her parents and students have blamed school authorities, who have denied allegations of negligence.
