Delhi restaurant insensitive towards disable rights activist: Report

The SDM, in his report, recommended that the government should give a stern warning to the restaurant management and frame guidelines about sensitive behaviour towards differently abled persons in the national capital.

The south Delhi restaurant which allegedly denied entry to a disable rights activist had been "insensitive" towards him, a magisterial inquiry ordered by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has concluded, as per the media reports.

Government sources said the Sub-Divisional Magistrate, in the report, said the footage of CCTV installed outside the restaurant showed that the restaurant's staff members stopped Nipun Malhotra from entering the eating joint.

The SDM, in his report, recommended that the government should give a stern warning to the restaurant management and frame guidelines about sensitive behaviour towards differently abled persons in the national capital. The report has been submitted to the office of the Deputy CM.

Malhotra, who was born with arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder, which leads to lack of muscles in arms and legs, had allegedly been denied entry at the restaurant in a south Delhi's mall on the evening of March 6.

"In the inquiry report, it was stated that the restaurant was insensitive towards Nipun Malhotra. The footage of CCTV also showed that Malhotra was denied entry and some force was also used to stop him," the sources said.

They said the report states that the call records of Nipun showed that he called up the manager of restaurant several times on the evening of March 6, but despite that he was not allowed to enter the restaurant.

"SDM has also recommended some guidelines according to which every person, including disabled person, should get right to admission and there should be no violation of human rights," the sources said.

"Government may issue warning to the restaurant in one or two days. Besides, the government is planning to issue advisory to all city restaurants, bars and pubs, directing them to deal with differently abled persons in a sensitive manner," they said.

After the incident, Sisodia had on March 7 directed the Sub Divisional Magistrate, Vasant Vihar, to conduct an inquiry and submit factual report to his office.

The government had, in a statement, said there was no doubt that all business entities have absolute freedom and rights to carry out their businesses in accordance with existing rules, but lack of sensitivity and tolerance is certainly an unhealthy practice which should be discouraged at all levels.
