Bombay HC adjourns Ryan trustees' bail plea till Wednesday

Bombay HC adjourns Ryan trustees' bail plea till Wednesday

During the brief hearing, the bench observed: "This petition is not restricted only to the school concerned as it has a country-wide ramification".

Earlier in the day, the Bombay High Court granted interim protection from arrest to the Ryan International Group Chairman and Managing Director Augustine Pinto till tomorrow over the murder of the student, Pradyuman, within the school premises.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted to look into the murder of the seven-year-old Gurugram student had pointed out serious security lapses in the school including the lack of separate toilets for staff like drivers and conductors. While former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda also echoed the same, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar also said the government is not averse to recommending the probe by premier investigating agency. However, strict action was demanded by the parents and others against school authorities, especially, after police revealed that Kumar was sacked from a private school in his village Ghamroj because of his suspicious behavior. There have been demands to revoke the school's affiliation.

We have to make the Trustees of this school accountable for criminal neglect in playing with safety of the children enrolled in their school. The state government and police have been asked to submit a detailed action taken report within three days.

Class 6 to 12 will reopen on Wednesday for exams while the junior and nursery sections will remain closed until further notice.

There is also a misconception that only girl children are unsafe in ill-secured schools.

The Minister said the liquor shop near the school had been ordered to shut down permanently.

"Preliminary inquiry has suggested the school had failed to follow the security norms advised by the government", he said. The Times Of India reports, the SIT found a host of security lapses on the part of the school that could potentially endanger its students and even the staff.

On Monday, protests continued at various branches of Ryan International School, including in Noida and Gurugram.

The police also detained acting principal Neerja Batra for interrogation. The possible danger was known to the school authorities, but no preventive steps were taken. However, the court has said clearly that this is not about one case alone, but pertains to the education system on the whole.

Since Pradyuman's school bag was found inside the toilet, it indicates that he went there straight from the gate and was attacked by someone who used those windows as escape route, the source said.
