Ekisha Shah’s family members organised a candle march in Noida on Wednesday demanding justice for their daughter and a CBI investigation regarding her death. The march continued from APJ School, Sector 16-A till DLF Mall, Sector-18 and witnessed huge participation from local residents.

Raghav Shah, father of the victim told City Spidey that he lost the ''apple of his eyes'' and did not want the same to happen to other parents in future. “I am missing my Ekisha, who was not only my daughter but also my friend and student,” he added.

The Noida police said that they have got a go ahead from the CBSE for revaluation of Ekisha's answer-sheet. However, a committee has still not been formed to check the sheet.


16-year-old Ekisha was a student of Ahlcon Public School, Mayur Vihar Phase-1 and had committed suicide last week at her residence in Sector-52, Noida owing to alleged sexual harassment and criticism.

Her parents alleged that school teachers had sexually harassed her and deliberately failed her in her annual exams. Further, they had also blocked the Noida-Delhi link road from both sides for about five hours in order to demand justice for their daughter. The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear a plea filled by Ekisha’s parents seeking a CBI investigation regarding her suicide.
