Gurugram student murder: Protests turn violent, police resort to

An order was issued by the State government on Monday, stating that all campuses of the aforementioned school will be closed till Tuesday.

A school bus conductor was arrested later that day for the murder and for allegedly trying to sexually assault the boy before attacking him.

The boy was found with his throat slit in a pool of blood in a washroom of the upmarket Gurgaon school on September 8.

The bench asked the governments and the CBSE to respond within three weeks. 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 parents think there is more to the murder.

Incidentally, in a letter dated 30 March 2017, Dr A.F. Pinto, chairman of the Ryan group, addressing Class 10 students, had said, "During your schooling with us, you have been constantly motivated, guided and instilled values to become a responsible citizen and global leader". And a killer had no difficulty entering the school premises with a knife.

The vile murder has landed a school bus conductor in jail, who seemingly has confessed to his crime-police custody confessions are not admissible in court. There have been two cases earlier as well where the students lost their lives and brought the school to the dock.

A batch of lawyers had told the Supreme Court that private schools are not implementing guidelines to ensure the safety of students. Sexual abuse scars children for ever and a murder as foul as the innocent 7 year old's in Gurugram leaves the parents with a life full of pain & utter devastation!

His plea seeks instant revocation of licences to schools that "either fail to adhere to the requisite criteria".

"There should be more and more woman employees in schools and school buses can also have woman drivers so that there is more safety for students".

While giving a statement, Ryan Pinto, CEO of Ryan International Schools Group, said that the school should not be held "culpable of a crime where it is itself a victim of unfortunate circumstances".

Parents whose children are studying in the Vasant Kunj branch of Ryan International School filed a first information report in the Vasant Kunj Police station in this regard. Also, no one from the school management has met us or spoken to us so far. He submitted that the government authorities must take punitive action and cancel the recognition of schools for not putting in place enough security measures for protection of students.
