The Supreme Court has sought the response of the Centre, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh governments on a PIL seeking urgent steps to control the outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) and provide necessary medical facilities to persons suffering from it.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, issued a notice to the Health Ministry, Chief Secretaries and Secretaries of Health of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh governments. The plea also sought prompt and free of cost treatment to all the children suffering from AES.

The plea, filed by a lawyer, sought direction to the Centre and state governments to create the necessary infrastructure for treatment of the children already suffering from the epidemic disease and prevent its further spread.

It also sought direction for the constitution of a committee of medical experts to find out the reasons for the loss of lives of more than 100 children and to fix responsibility of the persons whose negligence has resulted in the deaths.
