Gurgaon school murder: Protests outside Ryan International school in Navi Mumbai

12 September 2017

The Gurgaon police, which today arrested two top functionaries of Ryan International School in connection with the brutal murder of a 7-year-old child in the school premises, said that there was an attempt to destroy evidence in the case.

Both were produced before the court of Judicial Magistrate, first class, Mohamed Zakkaria, who sent them to two days' police custody. Section 75 of Juvenile Justice Act deals with cruelty to a child and punishment ranges from three to 10 years' imprisonment. "Our school principal finally met us after two hours and gave an assurance that all our demands will be looked into and that they will get back to us by September 18". "The school authority has falsely framed charges against him", said the father. According to the pleas, the Pintos read newspaper reports saying the public outcry was for also booking the management. The incident evoked outrage as parents and students' unions staged a protest in front of the school, demanding stern action against the teacher. "We are satisfied", ACP Birem Singh said.

The ghastly murder of seven-year-old Praduman has left several unanswered questions, especially after police found the toilet where he was killed had three windows with no grills.

They were chanting slogans against Myanmar authorities and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, de-facto leader of the country. Security has been beefed up around Buddhist temples and other institutions in Dhaka and elsewhere.

Further, the lawyer also pressed for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation in the matter.

Amid protests over the police and state government's inaction against the school after the gruesome murder, Haryana education minister Ram Bilas Sharma had assured parents, on Sunday, that strict action will be taken against Ryan International authorities.

As per reports, Raghav claims that despite the principal, teachers and students being present, none of them was willing to carry the injured Pradyuman to the auto which was to take him to the hospital. No culprit must be spared. "I inspected the toolkit just a day earlier and I am 100 per cent sure that the knife was not part of the toolkit".

The common currency had reached $1.2092, its highest since January 2015, on Friday when the dollar suffered a broad retreat. Tuesday's lone economic report - the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) for July will be released at 10:00 ET.

Jyoti, Pradyuman's mother, told the media, "My son did not even know the bus conductor as he never travelled in bus". They should accept their mistake and speak up. "Some other security lapses also emerged". It is in the toilet that Ashok, the conductor, tried to assault the victim, failing which he stabbed him and slit his throat.

"All schools, whether Government-run or private, will have to mandatorily install CCTV cameras in classrooms, washroom area and playgrounds as well". Also, the fire extinguishers were expired. There were no separate toilets for conductors and drivers and the wall behind the school remained unfinished which easily allowed anyone to enter the school premises without permission, added the report.
