‘Unrest’ in educational institutions need to be addressed seriously: Memon


New Delhi, Feb. 7 (ANI): Raising concerns over the rising incidents of sexual assaults in schools and universities, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majeed Memon on Sunday said any unrest in educational institutions need to be addressed seriously.

Memon lauded the AAP Government’s move to recommend a CBI probe into the mysterious death of Divyand Kakrora in Ryan International School.

“I think that is (CBI probe) necessary because there is lot of unrest when deaths are occurring or sexual assaults are happening or many other things are suspiciously or mysteriously happening in schools campuses and university campuses. It is a matter of serious concern because our youth is involved, as they are our future,” he told ANI.

“Therefore, any unrest in any educational institution needs to be very seriously addressed and a perception that schools and colleges are neglected by the people in authority should be minimised. It is necessary that a fair and proper inquiry is held into the whole truth of this matter,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Congress and Janata Dal (United) also backed the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP Government’s decision to recommend a CBI probe into the matter.

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)
