Hundreds of people on Sunday staged a demonstration outside the Ryan International School in Gurgaon demanding a CBI probe into the murder of a seven-year-old school boy and set afire a liquor shop near the school.
Police used batons to quell the protest and detained 20 protestors. Cameras of some photojournalists were also damaged during the protest.
Varun Thakur, father of the seven-year-old student, demanded a parallel CBI inquiry in the matter to get to reveal the entire truth. Thakur said that the entire incident took place so fast that it is obvious to suspect the entire episode to be pre-planned.
"Police is doing its job. I just want to request a parallel CBI inquiry so that every detail related to the case is revealed," he said. The boy's father also requested the protesters to keep their calm and not to get involved in any kind of violence.
"I want to request all the parents supporting us to not get involved in any kind of violence. I have lost my child; don't want to other to get hurt. Vandalizing things are not correct," Thakur told the reporters.
A Gurugram Court on Friday sent the accused, involved in the murder of the seven-year old student, to three days of police remand.
The accused was nabbed after the body of the class II student was found inside the toilet of the school, with his throat slit, on Friday.
The principal of the Gurugram-based school was suspended following this incident.
