Ryan school murder case handed over to CBI, says Haryana CM

Summary: The state government will also take over the management of the school for the next three months, he said.

Seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student, was found with his throat slit inside the washroom of Ryan International School in Gurgaon on September 8. While addressing the media, post his meeting with the victim's mother, Khattar said, "Ryan Murder Case will be handed over to CBI, letter will be written to CBI immediately". "There was a demand from the family members and several others for handing over the case to the CBI for investigation", Khattar told reporters. The Haryana CM in another statement said, "Have directed for a CBI probe & for three months our Dy Comm will look after the school's functioning". A conductor of the school bus was arrested for the crime.

"The Haryana Police has been properly conducting an investigation in this case".

The management of the school has also been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code in connection with the murder.

"In future, the schools should ensure that such incidents did not occur on their premises", he said.

The suspect's family, however, alleged that he was being made a scapegoat in the entire police investigation.

Reiterating this point during a press conference in Chandigarh, Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma said, "At the end of the three months, the situation will be reviewed".

Varun Thakur, the father of a seven-year-old boy murdered inside the Gurugram branch of the Ryan International School in Haryana last week, filed an application on Wednesday in the Bombay High Court seeking dismissal of the anticipatory transit bail plea filed by the school's trustees.

The Haryana government has taken into consideration the concerns of the bereaved parents and now hopes that the case will be resolved soon.

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