New Delhi: The father of six-year-old Divyansh, who was found dead in a water reservoir at Ryan International School, alleged there were injury marks on his son’s body, including private parts, and that the principal has threatened them to keep quiet over the issue.
“I saw the body. There were some injury marks and cotton on his private parts. The principal has been threatening me since the beginning saying that keeping quiet will be good for me,” said Ramheet Meena, the child’s father, as he demanded a CBI probe.
The aggrieved father also demanded that the licence or registration of the school be cancelled. “We are demanding CBI probe so as to know how can my child reach that unapproachable place which is often locked and why would he crawl to reach that place. Even after the body was found, they were discussing who is going to take out the body from the tank,” claimed Meena, a paramedical staffer at AIIMS.
Divyansh was found dead last Saturday in the reservoir under the amphitheatre of the school located in South Delhi. The initial autopsy report had suggested he died of drowning and no external injuries were found. Principal Sandhya Sabu had claimed that Divyansh was a ‘hyperactive’ child who had ‘tendency’ of running away from the classroom.
