New Delhi :

In a tragic incident at Ryan International School in Vasant Kunj, a 6-year-old boy was found dead in a water reservoir of the school on Saturday afternoon.

According to initial investigation, the boy went missing from the class after 6th period and his body was later found floating in the tank under the ampitheatre by a school electrician.

A case has been registered against unknown persons under IPC section 304A for causing death by negligence.

Police has also not ruled out the possibility of murder and have ordered a magisterial probe in the incident.

The teachers informed that the boy, Devansh, disappeared all of a sudden around 11.30am but was soon found playing near the class but again went missing around 12.20pm. This alerted the teachers who went searching for the missing child.

Then one of the school's electricians noticed the door of the underground room open and found the body of the child floating in it.

He was immediately rushed to the nearby Indian Spinal Injuries Centre where he was declared dead by the doctors. Police was called in at the spot.

Devansh’s parents work as paramedic staff at AIIMS and live in south Delhi's Sultanpur locality, near Mehrauli.

His father, Ramhet Meena, who works in the radiology department of AIIMS, alleged a conspiracy, claiming that someone from the school was behind the incident.

The incident happened just three days after another Class I student, a four-year-old boy, died after falling in a septic tank in his school run by the corporation in southwest Delhi's Kapashera area.

Two deaths in a week have raised emergencies regarding security of children in Delhi schools.
