Ryan child death: Sexual assault allegations should be probed, says Manish Sisodia
The parents of six-year-old Divyansh on Saturday wrote to HRD Minister Smriti Irani seeking a CBI probe into the death of their child at a school campus in Delhi.
New Delhi: The parents of six-year-old Divyansh on Saturday wrote to HRD Minister Smriti Irani seeking a CBI probe into the death of their child at a school campus in Delhi.
"Divyansh's death is too suspicious and the reasons behind his death are still unclear. School authorities have not given us proper information. I am sure of a criminal conspiracy against my child, that has led to his death in the school. I have written a letter to HRD Minister Smriti Irani and have asked for a CBI probe into the matter, " Divyansh's father said.
While 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.
"I saw injuries on the private parts of Divyansh which clearly indicates that someone tried to do something wrong with my son. Also, why no CCTV cameras were switched on the day when the incident happened. How did a six-year-old child manage to open a 20-kg lid of the water tank? Why did Divyansh take off his shoes before entering into the reservoir? It clearly points a conspiracy against my child", Divyansh's father said.
Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today supported the demand of CBI probe into the death of Divyansh Kakrora and said, "To say that the child was mentally unstable and had the tendency of running away from the classroom, is an irresponsible attitude from the school. Observation made by Divyansh's parents of possible sodomy in the case was completely ignored by the Delhi Police," Sisodia said.
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 January 30, 2016. The Delhi government has already ordered a magisterial probe into the case.
