New Delhi, Feb. 7 (AI): Deputy Chief Minister Manish Manish Sisodia on Sunday said the Delhi Government would send a recommendation for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the death of six-year-old Divyansh, a Class 1 student at Ryan International School in Vasant Kunj area, here.
“I have spoken to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over phone, who is returning to Delhi; we will send the recommendation for a CBI probe into the matter,” he said.
“The Delhi Government expects that the CBI will take the case to its logical end by probing all aspects (including sodomy charges) by taking into consideration views of the child’s parents and other people concerned,” he added.
Sisodia’s announcement came a day after the parents of Divyansh wrote to Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani, demanding a CBI probe into the death of their child on the school campus, whose body was found in a water tank under the school’s amphitheatre on January 30.
Hinting a possible sodomy in the case, Divyansh’s father claimed that injuries were found on the body of his child and accused the school authorities of shielding the accused in the case.
When asked that Divyansh’s father claimed that there was negligence on the part of the Delhi Police, he said, “The negligence is visible. I saw Divyansh’s parents saying on TV that no police officer even met them. A child has died on the school campus, and his parents are levelling serious allegations against the school management, even then a police officer did meet the child’s parents. This insensitive attitude is visible in the probe.”
The Delhi Police on Saturday said they would probe all angles and theories concerning the death. (ANI)
