Divyansh's family demands CBI probe into his death

New Delhi, Feb 2: Family members of Divyansh Kakrora, who was found dead in a water reservoir of his school, on Monday demanded a CBI probe into his death, saying they "do not have any hope for justice from" Delhi Police.

Accusing police of "trying to save" the school officials, an uncle of the victim told PTI the "media was quoting police and school authorities who have been changing their version."

"Police are sold to the powerful and we do not have any hope for justice from them," said Lokesh Mina, uncle of the victim. "First they said the water reservoir was not covered, then they started saying that it was partially covered.

Versions regarding time of the disappearance of Divyanash, his shrieks being heard by an electrician are also under doubt now," Mina said.

Meanwhile, police today continued to question the school authorities. Investigators suspect that the evidence were tampered with and relevant IPC Sections are likely to be added in the FIR, said a senior police officer.

A forensic team also went to the school and inspected the site. Six-year-old Divyansh Kakrora, a Class I student of Ryan International School in south Delhi's Vasant Kunj area, was found dead on January 30.

In the wake of the tragic death of Divyansh, Delhi government yesterday asked all schools in the city to submit a report to it over safety aspect in their buildings and also decided to form a task force to verify the arrangements.
