NEW DELHI: A team of doctors from AIIMS along with forensic experts will today visit Ryan International School in South Delhi and examine the water tank where six-year-old Divyansh Kakrora, a Class I student of the school was found dead.  

The doctors, who had prepared the preliminary post-mortem report of the boy, want to examine the spot where the incident took place before submitting the final report. The AIIMS' preliminary post-mortem report indicated that Divyansh's death was due to drowning. There were no external injuries on his body that could lead to death.    

The report pointed to asphyxiation (suffocation) due to aspiration of fluid into air passages as being the probable cause of the death, said sources at AIIMS. Ramhit Meena, father of Divyansh, has blamed the school authorities for his son's death.    

"It is a conspiracy by the school authorities and someone in the staff must be involved in the incident. I received a call from the school and I rushed to emergency ward at the hospital, where I found the principal at the entrance. "I kept asking everyone what had happened but nobody responded. Then the principal took me to the doctor, who informed me that my son was brought dead to the hospital," he said.            

Meena, who is a paramedic at AIIMS, further said, "When I sought answers from the principal, she asked me to stay put, claiming that it is for our own good. When I insisted, I was yelled at." However, the principal of the school had refuted the allegation and claimed that Divyansh was a special child, who was "hyperactive" and had a tendency of running away from the classroom.        

She, however, could not explain how the child fell into the water tank beneath the amphitheatre of the school. Divyansh was last seen before the seventh period on Saturday, which was around 12.20 PM. The authorities then started looking for him and after sometime he was found floating inside the pit which is used as a water storage tank. It is under the amphitheatre in the school's playground.

He was then rushed to a hospital, where he was declared brought dead.
