Delhi government on Monday ordered CBI probe into death case of Delhi’s Ryan International School student Divyansh Kakrora.
A government statement said, “The magisterial inquiry pointed out to the suspicious conduct of the school authorities and raised further queries. Therefore, it was decided by the government that in the interest of justice, it will be appropriate to refer the case to the CBI for investigation.”
The magistrate report, according to Indian Express said, ““Though the school was functioning on January 30, despite it not being a normal working day, there was not a single person to administer medical aid in the medical room, despite continuous announcement having been made in this regard.”
This came a day after Delhi’s deputy chief minister, Manish Sisodia said that his government will recommend a probe by the CBI into the death of six-year-old boy, Divyansh Kakrora, who had died in mysterious circumstances on 30 January.
Sidosia said, “Divyansh’s parents have levelled serious allegations. No police official has even met them. We can see shortcomings in the ongoing probe. We will definitely recommend CBI probe.”
Child Rights activist Ashok Agrawal too had asked for a CBI probe on Saturday.
He had said, “Ryan International is a very influential school, hence the case should be under CBI.”
Student of south Delhi’s posh Ryan International School, Divyansh was originally reported to have died by falling into a water tank inside the school campus on 30 January.
However, on Saturday Divyansh’s father made stunning revelation that the family had discovered cotton stuffed inside the deceased’s private part, there suggesting an alleged sodomy against the child.
He said, “I saw the dead body, there were some red marks & private parts had cotton on them. This is why we want a serious investigation in the matter. Police has not even tried to get in touch with me nor asked me questions.”
Delhi police, arrested five people including the school’s principal after the deceased’s father complained, before releasing all of them on bail.
