JMM demands SIT probe into school student’s murder

Ranchi, Feb 7 (IANS) Jharkhand’s main opposition party JMM on Sunday demanded a probe by a Special Investigation Team into the brutal murder of a Class 7 student inside a private school campus in the state capital.

The body of Vinay Kumar was found near the teachers’ hostel at the private school. Police said he was murdered around 1.30 a.m on Thursday.

Police sources said the boy’s liver was damaged as he was beaten up, while his head injuries indicate that he was hit by a hard object. His face was also disfigured.

Police detained a few teachers and a security guard of the school, while a police source said the art teacher was under suspicion.

“Even after two days, police have failed to crack the case. An SIT should be instituted to probe the case. Even young boys are not safe in the state,” Jharkhand Mukti Morcha general secretary Supriyo Bhattacharya told reporters.

He said Chief Minister Raghubar Das has not even bothered to meet the parents of the victim.

The Congress also questioned the role of police.

“Police seem to be clueless about the incident. The state government is in deep slumber. The chief minister, who holds the home department, seems least bothered about the case. A young boy is murdered in the school campus and the chief minister does not bother to speak to the parents,” Jharkhand Congress leader Shashi Bhushan Rai told IANS.
