In a shocking turn of events, an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand lost her life to starvation last month. Activists who are now protesting against the reason that led to the death say that Santoshi Kumari had not been given anything to eat for four days as her family couldn't manage it. 

The girl's family belongs to one with a pretty weak financial condition and was apparently struck off the government welfare rolls for not linking their Ration Card with Aadhaar. 

The family had, in fact, not received any ration since February and was completely dependent on 'help' from other villagers and the mid-day meal Santoshi would get at her school.
