Legal Question in Personal Injury in India

About 10 years ago, we lost our child while traveling on an international flight from Brussels to Delhi. The child was about 6 months old. He collapsed, and died about 1 hour before the flight landed.

An autopsy report indicated that cause of death was 'asphyxiation.' The airline said they did a curtsy investigation and did not take any responsibility for the incident. Even their letter on the matter was full of factual errors. My wife and I moved on. However, I wonder if I can still file a case/writ to:

a) Hold the Airline legally accountable

b) Claim compensation for Emotional Harm and Mental Suffering

The incident happened in June 2008. Is there a statute of limitations ?

It was in fact a very incident. 10 years have passed and you did not initiate any action against the airlines. However...considering parents mental state and immense irreparable loss suffered...a claim.for compensation with a plea to exempt the delay may be filed.
