Manish Sisodia says Delhi govt will recommend CBI probe in Divyansh’s death as family suspects sexual assault


Delhi’s deputy chief minister, Manish Sisodia on Sunday said that his 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.

Delhi Police’s DCP, South, Prem Nath said, “We are working on inputs from the father, no angle of investigation will be left. We are doing the investigation purely on merit. The FIR itself was registered on the basis of statement of Divyansh’s father. Notice has been issued to the school, the administration, & the higher authorities of the school.”
