With another homeless person found dead in Kashmere Gate area on Wednesday, the toll of destitutes shivering to death across the city has reached 174 since January 1.The government is yet to come up with a policy to protect them.

Earlier this month, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had promised to set up porta cabins at 45 locations. But the ground reality is that plastic shelters have been put up and they are in bad shape.

NGOs working for the homeless said the city government opted e-tendering for making the process transparent. “But it’s a lengthy procedure,” said a social worker. “It has delayed the whole process of setting up porta cabins.”

Since December 1, 2013 a total of 395 unidentified bodies have been found across the city. Some 1,127 homeless people were found dead from November 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013.

The most number of deaths have been reported from Kashmere Gate area.
Since December 1, 2013 the total number of deaths in north district has reached 79, and of these 39 were registered with Kashmere Gate police station. The organisations working for destitutes have been demanding more shelters in Kashmere Gate.

There are 10 shelter homes in the area, which can accommodate 400 homeless people. “But there are over 2,500 homeless people sleeping in the open. There is an urgent need for more shelters,” said Sunil Kumar Aledia of Centre for Holistic Development.

On Tuesday, a body was found under the Metro bridge in Yamuna Bazar. Another homeless person’s body was found dead near the railway bridge on Ring Road on Monday. NGO workers who work for the homeless also found a body near Chatta Rail in Kashmere Gate on Sunday.

Six more die due to cold, winter toll touches 401
NEW DELHI, Jan 24, 2014, DHNS:
With six more homeless persons found dead in different parts of Delhi late on Wednesday night, the toll of destitute shivering to death has crossed the 400-mark this winter season.

Since December 1 last year, a total of 401 homeless persons have died at different locations across Delhi. This year itself, 180 such people have succumbed to the cold weather conditions.

NGOs working to provide shelter the homeless from the winter cold, said last winter, a total of 1,127 persons lost their lives to the winter cold. The data is from November 1, 2012 to March 31 last year.

This year, the most number of deaths have been reported from north Delhi and Kashmere Area in particular. Lack of sufficient shelter homes in this area has forced organisations working for the destitute.

They claimed that about 2,500 homeless persons are left to sleep in the open. Only 400 such people can be accommodated in the 10 shelter homes in the area.
The rate at which the homeless people are dying due to cold had forced the National Human Rights Commission to take notice. It had issued a notice to the Chief Secretary of the Delhi Government on six deaths that took place on the rain-hit night of January 18.
