New Delhi: When Divyansh Meena, a class one student in Ryan International School in Vasant Kunj, fell in an open septic tank in the school compound and died, this incident ignited serious questions about the lethality of school negligence and its many other mismanagements. The principal of Ryan International School, along with four other staff members who were arrested yesterday by the police, were granted bail within minutes after their arrest.
Denying any negligence from their part which might have lead to the death of the child, the school authorities tried to steer public opinion by stating that the child was “hyper-active” and was one with “special needs”.
Crying foul over the alleged ‘accident’, Divyansh’s parents filed a police complaint. The police have booked the school authorities under Article 304a of the Indian Penal Code, which stands for negligence. The parents want the death of Divyansh to be treated as ‘murder’.
Reacting to the news, Divyansh’s parents today said that their child had not been a victim of an accident, but was actually murdered. Divyansh’s parents have demanded a CBI probe into the matter. They also said that no proof of the child’s death has been given to them by the school authorities.
Delhiites have taken to the streets to seek and demand justice for Divyansh.
