The father of Devansh Kakrora, a Class I student of Ryan International School who ‘drowned’ in water tank on the school premises, alleged Saturday his son was sexually assaulted before he was murdered.
“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,” said Ramheet Meena, a week after the death of his six-year-old son. “He was done to death,” insisted Meena.
A police officer associated with the probe, however, did not appear convinced with the allegation of sexual assault.
“The initial post-mortem findings and investigation so far do not indicate this,” said the officer who did not want to be named. The post-mortem was conducted at AIIMS and preliminary findings pointed to drowning, said a source. “The final report is awaited.”
