Police are struggling to determine the exact sequence of events leading to the death of a six-year-old boy at Ryan International school even after conducting several rounds of questioning in this regard.They are awaiting forensic report in connection with the incident along with the medical board’s opinion on the boy’s postmortem examination. The initial report has, however, suggested the boy died of drowning, a senior police official said, adding foul play can still not be ruled out.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In the last three days, police have questioned several teaching and non-teaching staff, including the principal of the school. Their versions were corroborated with what the boy’s parents had to say, following which the police have found significant differences. Such differences have so far been the major hindrance in determining the proper sequence of events in the case, the senior official said.Meanwhile, some of the staff members have also come under the scanner and are suspected of tampering with evidence. If it turns out to be so, Section 201 of IPC will be added in the existing FIR, the official said.Divyansh Kakrora, a Class I student of the school in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area, was found dead on January 30, following which Delhi government had also ordered a magisterial probe.In a similar incident which took place around three days before Divyansh’s death, a five-year-old boy had died after he fell into an open septic tank in a corporation-run school in southwest Delhi’s Kapashera area.Terming as “unfortunate” the death of children in both the cases, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday sought response of the AAP government, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) and the school authorities.By connecting the dots in Divyansh’s case, what police have so far been able to infer is that Divyansh had gone missing before the seventh period and later his body was found floating in a water reservoir under the school’s amphitheatre.Regarding the time when the boy went missing, they are confronted with two inputs, one suggesting that Divyansh was last seen attending the sixth period and the other that he went missing since recess (before the sixth period), said the official.
