Outrage over the death of a child in school can sometimes yield little results. Since 2015, the parents of S. Rahul have, despite their attempts, not seen any hint of justice though there are enough lines of inquiry the investigators could have pursued.
The family twice approached the Allahabad High Court to transfer the probe to the CBI. For, while the authorities had assumed it to be a suicide, there is sufficient evidence to believe there was foul play. The parents had also commissioned an independent forensic examination of available scientific data. Despite this, the police had tried to shut down the probe, but it was reopened by the lower court that was monitoring the case of the child’s unnatural death.
