Ryan International School's CEO seeks anticipatory bail over murder case

The apex court said that it would look into the safety issue of students across the country. I am not happy with the police investigation, and I want a detailed investigation as there is something which is missing in the probe.

"The trust's lawyers have moved an application for anticipatory transit bail to them to enable them to visit Haryana and move the appropriate court there for relief", said a senior official connected to one of the trust's schools in Mumbai, who declined to be identified. This death should set an example for strict monitoring of schools and their responsibilities and duties, he said.

It seems parents are destined to forever live in fear - the fear that this could happen to my child, is my child safe in the school? We put forth several demands on Saturday to tighten the said security, and we were glad to see changes take place within days, by Monday itself. Recently, a three membered special team reported the drawbacks of school authorities according to which there is no separate toilet for school bus conductors or drivers, they use the same washroom. This, they said, had made the playground a den of criminals. School bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who allegedly tried to sexually assault Class II student Pradhuman Thakur in a toilet and slit his throat with a knife when he resisted on Friday, is already behind bars.

Following the incident, hundreds of people, including parents and locals, gathered at the school premises for a sit-in, demanding action against the school. Police then resorted to lathicharge to bring the situation under control and disperse the protesters. Cameras of some journalists were also damaged. As a result, police had to be called in and lathicharge was used to disperse the crowds.

The Ryan management is also accused of not conducting a background check of the bus conductor, who worked for a private agency contracted by the school to provide non-teaching staff.

Following this Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has assured immediate action.

The victim's father said earlier that the sequence of the crime remains unclear.

We have to stop making it so easy for sexual predators to get away with crimes.

Neerja Batra, the acting principal of the school, is now hospitalised. Principal has been suspended, whatever lapses will be found will be acted against.

Government, school authorities need to learn a lesson that the Gurugram case has chillingly highlighted - the urgent need for the security of children. Also, the fire extinguishers were expired.
