When asked whether there was any negligence on the part of the school authorities, the DCP stated that they are probing the matter from several angles.
Meanwhile, the relatives of the victim on Friday protested in front of the school, blaming the negligence of the authorities for the death of Awadesh.
The boy's sister Kanchan said that when they entered the school asked for justice, they were told to leave.
