Congress, JD (U) for `fair` CBI probe into Divyansh`s death

New Delhi : The Congress and Janata Dal (United) have demanded a fair probe into the death of Divyansh Kakrora, whose body was found floating in a water tank at Ryan International School, so that those responsible are brought to book.
Both parties backed the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP Government’s decision to recommend a CBI probe into the matter.

Congress leader Shobha Oza dubbed the incident to be ‘horrifying’ and said the demands and queries of the parents must be addressed.

“There should be a very fair probe so that all the issues related to the death of this innocent child are brought to the forefront and then the action is taken against the people, who are responsible so that such horrifying incidents do not get repeated,” Congress leader Shobha Oza told ANI.

“If the parents are demanding a CBI inquiry, it should happen because it’s a great loss for their family,” she added.

Echoing similar sentiments, JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi said that it was a good step taken by the Delhi Government as it would help uncover the truth.

“I back the Delhi Government’s move to recommend a CBI probe into the death of Divyansh,” he said.

Meanwhile, Divyansh’s parents met Delhi’s Women and Child Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar and submitted a memorandum to him expressing their concerns.

“He (Sandeep) assured us that he will recommend a CBI probe into the matter,” Divyansh’s father said.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Manish Sisodia earlier today said the Delhi Government would send a recommendation for CBI probe into the death of Divyansh.

Sisodia’s announcement came a day after the six-year-old boy’s parents wrote to Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani, demanding a CBI probe into the death of their child on the school campus.

The Delhi Police yesterday said they would probe all angles and theories concerning the death of the boy, whose body was found in a water tank under the school’s amphitheatre on January 30. (ANI)
