Army officer shot Dilson

             A day after 13-year-old Dilson was shot dead allegedly for trespassing into an Army area, the Tamil Nadu government has handed over the case to the Crime Branch-CID.
           "Our officers and local officers are investigating. Any further information we will let you know," said CB-CID ADGP R Sekar.
            The Army had earlier indicated that a civilian or a policeman could have opened fire and that no arms were permitted in the area. But more than 24 hours after the incident, there is still no clarity on where the investigation stands. Under fire, the Army has now come out with a statement assuring cooperation in the probe.

            But there are still several unanswered questions -
  •  Have the police identified the bore of the bullet that killed Dilson? 
  •  Since the Army uses particular types of bores, won't that be conclusive evidence? 
  •  Is it possible that armed civilians can be roaming around a restricted Army area? 
  •  Why are the police not treating this as a case of murder? 
  •  Has the Army allowed any of its jawans to be questioned by the police?
          Meanwhile, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has also stepped in and demanded a report from the Tamil Nadu government.

          "Such an innocent activity as plucking of a fruit can lead to this is shocking...We have taken suo moto cognizance and have asked the chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu to submit a report," NCPCR Member Secretary Luv Verma.
  It's a shocking case, which raises several crucial question and hopefully, the postmortem report may reveal more details and the CB CID would be able to achieve a breakthrough soon and nab the culprit.
