NEW DELHI: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday said that he has asked concerned officials to seek an explanation from Ryan International School with regard to allegations made by the parents of Divyansh Kakora.
“I feel the observation of parents that cotton was found at the anal points of the child is being ignored. This points towards a bigger and unfortunate event, let’s see, I will go through the report again and necessary action would be taken,” Sisodia told reporters here.
Sisodia further said that the probe report raises serious concerns as to how a private school could be lethargic towards its students.
“The way this boy reached a place where no normal child can reach and the way the management refused to rescue him and a class 11 student had to rescue him,” he added.
Sisodia further said that if private schools management and their staff are playing with the security of students, then it obviously raises fears in everyone’s mind.
Meanwhile, the father of the victim when asked to respond on this said: “I saw the dead body, there were some red marks and private parts had cotton on them”.
“This is why we want a serious investigation in the matter. The police has not even tried to get in touch with me nor even asked any questions to us,” he added.
He further claimed that no action has been taken in the case, as it was being suppressed.
“Why is the police not asking me questions I am only raising concerns. The police should look into them rather than just focusing on what Ryan School is saying,” he added.
The Delhi Government in its magisterial inquiry into the case 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.
