New Delhi: The parents of six-year-old Divyansh Kakrora, who was found dead in a reservoir of Ryan
International school, on Tuesday wrote to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia seeking an appointment with him and reiterating their demand for a CBI probe into the incident.
"His death was too suspicious and the reasons are still not clear. I am sure of some conspiracy against my child.
Being a father, I request you to please give us an appointment," Divyansh's father Ramheet Meena said in a letter
to Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio.
"I also urge you to hand over this case to CBI so that a proper probe can be conducted. Otherwise, I know, this case would be suppressed by the school administration," he said.
Meena, a paramedical staff at AIIMS, and his family left for his hometown in Rajasthan's Dausa district after an
autopsy conducted on Divyansh's body.
"We want to meet the Education Minister when we are back in Delhi and request him to personally intervene in the case. We don't trust the school authorities. We are in (a state of) shock due to the kind of excuses they have given for Divyansh's death," Meena told PTI.
Divyansh, a class I student of Ryan International School in Vasant Kunj area, was found dead in a water tank under the school's amphitheatre on 30 January. The Delhi government has already ordered a magisterial probe into the case.
While his parents have termed it a conspiracy and alleged someone from the school was behind the incident, principal Sandhya Sabu has claimed that Divyansh was a "hyperactive" child who had the "tendency" of running away from the classroom.
"This child was a special child, who was hyperactive. He had the tendency of running away from the classroom. We
understand what the parents are going through at this moment of loss. The allegations (on school) are absolutely wrong," she had said.
Police are struggling to determine the exact sequence of events leading to the death of the child even after conducting several rounds of questioning in this regard.
They are awaiting forensic and the medical board's opinion on the boy's postmortem examination. The initial report has, however, suggested the boy died of drowning, a senior police official said, adding foul play can still not be ruled out.
In the last three days, police have questioned several teaching and non-teaching staff, including the principal of
the school. Their versions were corroborated those of the boy's parents. The police have found significant differences in the two.
