Devansh had injury marks in private parts: Father

The father of six-year-old Devansh, who was found dead in a water reservoir at Ryan International School, today alleged there were injury marks on his 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...," Ramheet Meena, the child's father, said, as he renewed the demand for 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.

Devansh was found dead last Saturday in the reservoir under the amphitheatre of the school located in South Delhi. The initial post-mortem report had suggested he died of drowning and no external injuries were found.

Principal Sandhya Sabu had claimed that Devansh was a "hyperactive" child who had "tendency" of running away from the classroom.

"In order to save themselves, the school authorities are alleging that my kid was hyperactive. No report from doctors or school suggests that he was hyper," Meena said.
"Police have not taken any action. Those arrested were given bail immediately instead of being sent to remand. I have raised 25 questions to the police and they are not responding to my questionnaire," he added.
