Another Aadhaar Caused Starvation Death


A Woman in Bareilly in the state of Uttar Pradesh of India, died due to starvation as she was denied food ration since it was not linked to her Aadhaar card. ANI reported her husband was refused ration as ration shop owner allegedly demanded the woman be present for bio-metric fingerprint verification. She was unwell for past 5 days. The woman has been identified as Sakina (50) wife of Ishaq Ahmed.

On September 28, an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand’s Simdega district died, allegedly after her family was denied ration because their ration and Aadhaar cards were not linked.

Three brothers within two weeks of each other in Karnataka’s Gokarna were also caused by starvation after the family was denied ration because they did not have Aadhaar cards. The family had two ration cards but were unable to access the public distribution system.
