The SIT averred that the school did not have any separate toilets for staff like drivers and conductors, while adding that the administration even did not get their employees identification verified. The court has issued notices to the Centre, CBI and the Haryana government and sought their replies on Varun's plea within three weeks.
The body of a class II student with his throat slit was found inside the toilet of Ryan International School at Bhondsi in Gurgaon on Friday morning. Apprehending the worst, Ryan Pinto, along with his old parents, has approached the Bombay High Court.
Two senior officials at a prominent school in northern India have been arrested in connection with the murder of an eight-year-old student.
Both of them were produced before the court of Judicial Magistrate, who sent them to two days police custody. Some more arrests are likely to take place soon, he further said.
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. 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. "The police detained over 20 protesters found agitating outside the school", Ravinder Kumar, PRO Gurugram Police, told PTI.
Their counsel Niteen Pradhan mentioned the applications before Justice Ajey Gadkari, who posted them for hearing on Tuesday.
On Sunday, the Haryana government ordered that a criminal case be filed against the management of the Ryan International School as well as the owner of the school, following the murder of seven-year-old, Pradhyumn Thakur.
However, no member of the Pinto family, which runs the chain of schools, was quizzed today by the sleuths from Haryana, police said.
The SIT findings stated that the CCTV cameras of the school were not working properly and were not installed everywhere.
This incident has raised enough agitation among parents and public alike where they are questioning the safety measures undertaken by the schools and demanding a thorough background check of all the staff employed by the authority.
It was also unclear whether the remaining trustees could also be implicated in the case that has snowballed into a major national issue concerning safety and security of children in schools.
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has asserted that there will be no leniency and the school management will be held accountable.
