New Delhi: Two days after the parents of Divyansh Kakrora suspected foul play in their son's death in a private school here on January 30, the final post-mortem report suggests the student of Ryan International Public School died due to drowning.

Divyansh's parents had claimed that their son was found in a naked state and they could not find his clothes.

Divyansh had died after falling into a septic tank at Ryan International Public School in Vasant Kunj area of the city at about 12.30 pm on January 30.

 

However, the post-mortem report of Divyansh, which was submitted to the Delhi Police by AIIMS today, does not suggest sexual assault, but maintains the boy died due to presence of water in his lungs.

Talking to media, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi said the post-mortem report does not prima facie indicate sexual assault, adding death is due to drowning. 

Divyansh's parents are scheduled to meet Bassi today.

Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had on Sunday said that the Delhi government will recommend a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into Divyansh’s death.

 

The Delhi Police had on Thursday arrested the principal of the school Sandhya Sabu on charges of causing death due to negligence.

Four other employees of the school were also arrested on the same charges. They were class teacher Minakshi Kapoor (38), reverse osmosis plant operator Yogesh Kholiya (23), maintenance incharge Puran Singh Bisht (65), and gardener Ram Narayan (44).
