Ryan International School

Khattar further announced that the school management would be taken over by the state for the next three months.

His father, Varun Thakur, had moved the Supreme Court for a CBI probe into the case citing "too many loopholes" in the police theory and the school management's stand on the murder. "There was a demand from the family members and several others for handing over the case to the CBI for investigation", Khattar told reporters.

Pradyumans parents have always been demanding CBI inquiry. Police have arrested Ashok Kumar, a conductor of one of the school's buses, as the prime suspect in the case.

Earlier in the day, Khattar met the bereaved family of Pradyuman, assuring them justice in time-bound manner.

"This incident (the murder of Pradhyumn) was unfortunate".




"In future, the schools should ensure that such incidents did not occur on their premises", he said. According to the claim made by investigators, he has confessed to his crime of murdering the child during the interrogation.

The Directorate of School Education and the Haryana government have constituted a committee to frame guidelines for safety of students and teachers at schools.

There would be proper attendance, reporting of absentees and compulsory ID cards for staff and students while special attention would be paid to accident and abuse-prone areas inside schools, he said.

The top officials of the school have already been arrested after a report glaring lapses were found in the security infrastructure of the school including non-functional CCTV cameras, non-verification of staff and lack of separate toilets for staff like drivers and conductors.

On the CM's directive, Bihar Director General of Police P K Thakur had a telephonic conversation with his Haryana counterpart and requested him to to take strongest possible action against the culprits in the case, it said.
