Haryana police quiz Ryan Group's CEO

Bombay HC adjourns Ryan trustees bail plea till September 13

Earlier on Monday, the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Centre, the Haryana government and the state's Director General (DG) of police, the CBSE and the CBI asking for a probe by the central agency into the brutal murder.

On May 2016, a 7-year-old girl identified as Jiya studying in Ryan International school, Gurugram died after being hit by a speeding vehicle after she got off her school bus.

Class 2 student Praduman Thakur was found with his throat slit in a school washroom on Friday last.The murder, in connection with which a bus conductor has been arrested, has triggered a major outrage.

Augustine F. Pinto and his wife Grace Pinto, trustees of the St Xaviers Education Trust that manages the Ryan International Schools, have sought the bail.

The officials who were arrested on Sunday night were identified as Francis Thomas, regional head of the group, and HR head (Bhondsi branch) Jeyus Thomas.

Activists say that many more cases likely went unreported.

She also questioned why no FIR had been filed against the school, principal and directors as they were "directly responsible for the safety the children".




The ACP further apprised, "In questioning, two children disclosed he (accused bus-conductor) was present in the toilet before the incident". This morning, hundreds of parents held protests outside the Navi Mumbai branch of the school for the fifth day, demanding better security for students. He also alleged that police officers in civil dress threatened him with dire consequences if he did not admit that knife was a part of the bus toolkit.

Neerja Batra, the acting principal of the school, is now hospitalised.

However, no member of the Pinto family, which runs the chain of schools, was quizzed today by the sleuths from Haryana, police said. Security has been beefed up at the school premises.

Meanwhile, lawyer Gunratan Sadavarte, who was in the court when the matter was being heard, told the high court that he wanted to file an intervening application on behalf of some parents' associations opposing the bail pleas of the Pintos.

The principal and a few teachers of the Ryan International School in Gurugram have been arrested where a 7-year-old boy was found murdered in the school washroom, as an investigation team found several serious security lapses at the school. The arrests came after the Haryana government ordered a criminal case against the school for the crime.

The report by the investigative team also highlighted that the CCTV cameras of the school weren't working properly and were not installed everywhere.
