Ryan Group chairman, MD get anticipatory bail

Posted September 13, 2017

The protesters also gathered in front of the school demanding a CBI probe in the murder.

Pradyuman mostly likely caught the accused school bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, in the act, the police claimed on Monday.

Teachers take out a candle march to pay tributes to seven-year-old Pradyumna Thakur in Bhopal on Monday who was found murdered in Ryan International School in Gurugram.

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted interim protection from arrest to Ryan International Group's top officials till Wednesday in connection with the murder of a boy on the school's premises in Gurugram.

The school's acting principal was suspended and the security staff removed.

The two-member Haryana police team of assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Madan Singh and Police Inspector (PI) Anand Kumar arrived at Samta Nagar Police station this morning; the headquarters comes under the jurisdiction of the police station.

It is also not certain as of now whether the remaining trustees stand to be implicated in the case which has snowballed into a major national issue concerning safety and security of children in private schools.

Another fact that raises doubts over what actually happened to Pradyuman is the Gurgaon Police's allegation that school authorities tampered with the evidence.

The Pinto family has also highlighted the "security" measures in force in all their schools and contended that they can not be held responsible for the horrific incident. Raghav also alleged he was beaten up by police.

He further assured that he will try his best to file the charge sheet in the court by Saturday, in regard to the matter.

Four days after a seven-year-old boy was found brutally murdered in his Gurugram school's bathroom, there are several troubling questions over the local police's investigation into the crime that has shaken up parents and prompted other schools to review their security. The Pintos, in their pleas, said while the death of the boy was unfortunate, the management can not be held culpable and that they themselves were victims of the unfortunate circumstances.

The school's promoter, Grace Pinto, is a national executive member of the BJP's Mahila Morcha and the school's Vasant Kunj branch in New Delhi had attracted considerable controversy a year ago when the promoters - Grace and her husband AF Pinto - had reportedly instructed the staff members to ensure that they along with parents of students at the school get at least 10 people each to enroll as members of the BJP.

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.

Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia has demanded that a "verification of staff by the police is a must in schools".
