The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) will investigate the death of a Class 12 student, whose body was found under mysterious circumstances in a private residential school at Kallakurichil district of Tamil Nadu on July 13.

NCPCR Chairman Priyang Kanoongo said in a tweet that he would soon visit Kallakurichi to “inquire into the suspicious death of a girl child in a residential building”.

He is likely to visit the school and the hostel premises at Kallakurichi, where the student stayed.

The move followed the strong remarks made by Madras High Court, while hearing the case.

The High court had flayed the police for failing to contain the violence that erupted at Kallakurichi on Sunday.

A probe was also conducted by the Tamil Nadu CB-CID into the circumstances that had led to the suicide of the girl student.

The state investigative agency had posted a notice on the house of the deceased girl in Cuddalore district on Wednesday, asking the family members to collect her body since the second autopsy was over. The first autopsy revealed that the girl “died of hemorrhage and shock due to multiple injuries”. However, the actual reason for her death is unknown.

While the school authorities alleged that she died by suicide, the family members alleged foul play in the death. After the kin started to stage a protest demanding justice for the girl, an arson broke out in Kallakurichi. Following this, the case was transferred to CB-CID for probe.

Kallakurichi Collector PN Sridhar was also transferred and was replaced by Sravan Kumar Jatavath.
