New Delhi: The father of six-year-old Devansh Kakrora, who died after falling in a septic tank of his school here on January 30, said on Monday that his son was “murdered” and he wants a CBI investigation into the case.
“I am not satisfied with the Delhi Police probe. They arrested five people under a bailable section (of the law) whereas my son was murdered,” a distraught Ramhat Meena told IANS.
“I want a CBI probe in the case,” he said.
Devansh, a class one student, died after falling into a septic tank at the Ryan International Public School in Vasant Kunj area of the city around 12.30 p.m. on January 30.
The Delhi Police had on Thursday arrested school principal Sandhya Sabu (50), class teacher Minakshi Kapoor (38), reverse osmosis plant operator Yogesh Kholiya (23), maintenance incharge Puran Singh Bisht (65), and gardener Ram Narayan (44) on charges of causing death due to negligence.
Meena met Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi on Monday and requested him to register a case of murder.
“I am still unable to understand what is happening. Neither the Delhi government nor the police have taken any satisfactory action in my son’s death case. It has been almost 10 days,” Meena told IANS.
Meena is now planning to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to seek his intervention in the case.
“Although the Delhi government too has been advocating a CBI probe, so far nothing on that front has been done. I am hoping to meet the chief minister in a day or two,” he added.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday said the Delhi government will recommend CBI probe into the matter.
