Parties demand arrest of GD Goenka school principal, management
Leaders of Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and Left parties joined hands to protest before the District Magistrate (DM)'s office to demand immediate arrest of the principal and management of GD Goenka Public School. Local leaders cutting across party lines not only joined the sit-in on Thursday but expressed their resolve to intensify their agitation for punishing the guilty who were responsible for the death of 10-year-old Armaan Sehgal in the school premises.
They further demanded CBI investigation in the case and to seal the crime scene. They raised serious questions on the credibility of the school and alleged that the school management was running classes in under construction portion of school building. Leaders submitted a memorandum to Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) HN Singh and Ministhy S, the DM and demanded the immediate arrest of the culprits. The signatories included several former MLA's and a former Lok Sabha MP Surendra Prakash Goel.
BSP leader Satyapal Chaudhary said the SSP had earlier assured the family to arrest the culprits by last Monday but he failed to fulfill his promise. Now family and all political and social organisations have no other option but to sit on dharna.
In the meantime, the Allahabad High Court is hearing the petition filed by the GD Goenka Public School on Thursday in which the school prayed to quash the FIR and to stay arrest. But the court issued notice when it found a caveat on record filed by the family.
It may be recalled that the Armaan, a student of Class IV had died in the school premises after he slipped in the second floor corridor of the school while he was going to the classroom. As he collapsed, the school management rushed him to a nearby Shanti Gopal Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
Police registered a criminal case against the principal and the management of the school for committing culpable homicide not amounting to murder and destroying the evidence under Sections 304 and 201 of IPC.
Earlier, Swati Sehgal, the mother of deceased Armaan, confronted SSP HN Singh and asked the reason for the delay in arrest the culprits since her son had died inside the school premises and parents were not allowed to visit the crime spot. She alleged the scene was heavily dressed up to cover up the culpability of the school management.
Armaan's father Gulshan Sehegal alleged that it was the fault of the school that corridor was not safe to walk. Arman's cloths were found wet which suggested that there was water on the floor. A legal action should be initiated against the erring institute at the earliest, Sehgal added.
