Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Prem Nath had said on Saturday that investigation into the death of Kakora is being done "purely on merit", adding that they would not leave any angle uninvestigated.

"An FIR has been lodged following the complaint by the victim`s fathers. We are doing investigations purely on merit, and no angle of the investigation will be left. We are still waiting for the post- mortem report of the child," Nath had told the media, as per ANI.

Earlier, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said that he has asked officials concerned to seek an explanation from the school with regard to allegations made by the parents of Divyansh.

Divyansh`s father had alleged that efforts were on to hush up the matter.

The Delhi government in its magisterial inquiry into the case had found that "deliberate" inaction of Ryan International School authorities amounting to "gross criminal negligence" led to the death of six-year-old Divyansh on January 31.

So far, the principal and four other staffs of the school located in South Delhi`s Vasant Kunj area are out on bail.
