Jharkhand HC moved for CBI probe into student’s murder

Ranchi, Feb 9 (IANS) A parents’ association on Tuesday filed a public interest litigation in the Jharkhand High Court to seek a CBI probe into a student’s murder in a school here.

“We have filed a PIL in the high court for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe since we are not satisfied with police investigation. Even the boy’s parents are not satisfied. We want justice for the murdered student and his parents,” Ranchi Abhibhavak Sangh general secretary Ajay Rai, who moved the high court on behalf of the association, told IANS here.

On Monday, the mother of class VII student Vinay Kumar demanded the CBI probe. “We demand a CBI probe so that the truth comes out,” she told reporters here.

Vinay was found murdered brutally on Thursday near the teachers’ hostel at the Saffaire International school.

Police sources said the boy had head injuries inflicted by blunt objects and his liver too was damaged due to the severe beating.

Ranchi Police have since questioned seven schoolteachers, security guards and others in the case.

Opposition Jharkhand Mukti Morcha has demanded a special investigation team’s probe into the murder.
