Police will verify all school staff, CCTVs will increase: Manish Sisodia

Police will verify all school staff, CCTVs will increase: Manish Sisodia”

All schools - government, municipal as well as private - will also have to ensure that CCTVs cover classrooms, corridors, stairs and areas outside the toilets, he said.

Recalling the death of six-year-old Devansh Kacrora at Delhi's Ryan International School on January 30, 2016, he said that he had then asked for a CBI probe in the case but to no avail.

Hitting out at private schools, Sisodia said there are several schools that enjoy political protection, and flout rules and commit crimes with impunity.

"In every school in Delhi, rigorous police verification should be done of every staff, every person who enters the school premises within 3 weeks", Mr Sisodia said. "One-and-a-half years ago, after Divyansh drowned in Ryan International School in Vasant Kunj, I had suggested that a CBI inquiry be initiated into the matter".

Though no deadline was given for this, Sisodia said, monthly reports on whether the CCTVs were functional or not should be submitted by all schools to the Delhi government. Sisodia added that the police records of school staff would be updated every month. "We have told everyone to refer to that list", he said.

"Its mandate will be to give suggestions on how to make our schools safe and secure for every child. If any employee is on the list, he or she should be released immediately". The education minister also rued the political links some private schools have.

Two senior officials of the Ryan International School here have also been arrested in connection with the murder of a seven-year-old boy in the school premises last week that sparked massive public outrage. "But he [the magistrate] should not feel he is under any kind of pressure". The child was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead. "It will create a complete SOP (standard operating procedure) on safety of children and look into every aspect, including transport, surveillance and security provided to school", he said.

The minister claimed that it was possible that "something had happened" with other children at the school in the past too.
