The Bombay High court on Thursday directed the Maharashtra Government to file an affidavit as to how the funds given by the central government for checking malnutrition deaths in rural areas between 2003 to 2007 were spent.

A division bench of Chief Justice Swatenter Kumar and Justice D Y Chandrachud also directed the principal Accountant General of the Union of India to countercheck the affidavit to be filed by the government and submit a report within four weeks.

The court’s order came on a PIL filed by Dr Rajendra Burma and others on the issue of malnutrition deaths in the Melghat area of Vidarbha.
