Posted September 13, 2017

Fourteen police teams constituted to probe the case, which has sparked huge public outrage, are questioning the school staff while an SIT team is headed to Mumbai to interrogate school CEO Ryan Pinto and director Albert Pinto. The victim's parents have asked for a probe by the CBI in this case and their petition was heard in the Supreme Court on the 11 of September, at 12:30 IST.

Meanwhile, the Gurugram Police has said that only Ashok was involved in the crime.

Two senior officials at a prominent school in northern India have been arrested in connection with the murder of an eight-year-old student. Stating that the school has "total faith in the law", it said, "We hope that the investigations will be concluded soon, and the guilty get the severest punishment as per the due process of law".

Pinto, his wife Grace Pinto, and their son Ryan Pinto - among the trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust that manages Ryan International Schools - have sought anticipatory bail, which is likely to come up for hearing in the High Court on Tuesday.

Raghav has also told the media that when he met Kumar after the incident, he looked rather composed for someone who had just tried to molest a child and then killed him.

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. The incident has led to parents of children studying in various branches of Ryan International School question the safety provided to students on the premises. The police also added section 34 (common intention) of the IPC in the murder case. Last year, the Delhi traffic police penalised the owners of 1,160 school buses and vans for not possessing the requisite permission. This morning, hundreds of parents held protests outside the Navi Mumbai branch of the school for the fifth day, demanding better security for students.

The principal and a few teachers of the Ryan International School in Gurugram have been arrested where a 7-year-old boy was found murdered in the school washroom, as an investigation team found several serious security lapses at the school.

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

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". According to reports, security slips are found inside the campus, many of CCTV cameras are not working.
