Mother of 14-year-old Diwas Gurung, whose skeleton was found near Enchey jungle, is dissatisfied with the police statement regarding her son’s death. According to her, he was staying at the Sikkim Building and Other Construction Welfare Board Hostel located below Daragaon, Lingding.
She claims that the hostel did not inform her immediately after her son went missing in July 2022. Furthermore, she refuted the police statement that her son had depression or anxiety issues.
Deceased child’s cousin has also raised questions about the role of the hostel authorities during the period when he was missing, and even after his remains were discovered on April 8, 2023, almost 9 months later.
The cousin alleges that the hostel authorities have not taken the matter seriously and have not responded to the family’s inquiries.
