New Delhi, Jan.30 (ANI): Expressing concern over the ‘insensitive behaviour’ shown by the management of the Ryan International school over the death of a six-year-old child, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday said that accountability should be fixed for the incident.
“The insensitive behaviour of the school management is a reason of my concern. The accountability should be fixed in this case seeing the insensitiveness and the irresponsibility of the school staff,” Sisodia told ANI.
“I have ordered the District Magistrate to find the facts and give the details about the responsibility of the school management and the principal,” he added.
He also said that if the schools can’t take care of the safety and the security of the students then they should immediately close down the institutes.
Meanwhile, school principal, Sandhya Sabu rubbished the allegations put forward by the father of the deceased student where he accused the school management of hiding facts about the incident.
“Our medical staff gave him the first aid and rushed him the hospital. This child was special who had a tendency of running out from the class. We sympathise with the parents and its great loss for us as well but allegations are absolutely wrong,” Sabu said.
Six-year old Devansh Meena was found dead in a septic tank of the private school located in Vasant Kunj area of South Delhi. The incident took place at around 12 noon when the boy went missing at the school.
The child was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.
