Ryan murder: SC issues notice to Centre, Haryana govt, HRD Ministry

The Gurugram Police on Saturday said that the committee has been formed to find loopholes in the security arrangement in Ryan International School where a seven-year-old student has been murdered. In Mumbai, police said there is already a system in place to ensure schools take measures to prevent exploitation of students on their premises.

Besides seeking the Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the murder of seven-year-old Pradhuman last week, Varun Chandra Thakur has also sought the framing of guidelines to make schools accountable in cases related to safety of children. The protestors have alleged that the school bus drivers and conductors were regular visitors to the liquor shop and the Ryan management was privy to this fact. However, the parents of the deceased child claim that the school is making bus conductor a scapegoat and the real culprit is on the run.

Ryan Pinto, the CEO of the school group, said in a statement that his institution and staff should not be held "culpable of a crime where it is itself a victim of unfortunate circumstances".

Meanwhile, in yet another important development in the murder case, the Mumbai-based owners of the Ryan have filed an anticipatory bail application in the Bombay High Court ahead of being questioned by a team of Haryana police.

School bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who allegedly tried to sexually assault the class II student in a toilet and slit his throat with a knife when he resisted, on Friday, has been arrested.


There was a heavy police presence at the school, which will remain closed for now, except for students of senior grades, who will sit for exams from Wednesday, media reports said.

At least 50 people, including nine scribes and photo journalists, were injured on Sunday when police baton-charged a group of protestors in front of the school building. The protesters also demanded a CBI probe into the school boy's murder. Parents drop their kids to school with the trust that our kids will be safe, protected within these walls of learning.

Singh didn't respond to a question on what action has been taken against the school management.

A report by the special investigation team pointed out several serious security lapses at the school.

- The school management informed parents that the classes will be suspended for another two days "to express solidarity with the parents and family of the child".
