Gurgaon school murder: Protests outside Ryan International school in Navi Mumbai

Posted September 12, 2017

Mumbai: Two officers from Haryana Police today questioned staff at the Ryan International School in Kandivali in connection with the murder of a boy in the institution's premises in Gurgaon.

While huge protests continued for almost 3-4 days at the school's Gurgaon branch, several other parents are coming together to form committees and lay certain basic parameters to ensure security and safety of their children.

As per the theory of Gurugram police, Kumar was waiting inside the toilet and as soon as Praduman entered, he tried to sodomise him.

The parents of the school students are demanding a CBI probe into the matter and cancellation of school licence.

Earlier, the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Centre, HRD Ministry and Haryana Government seeking a report within three weeks. "The committee has found on Sunday that the toilets were shared by the students and staffs with no security for the students". Police are now probing whether someone else committed the crime and used one of the windows to escape.

Barring the Pinto family, the names, whereabouts or the eligibility of the other trustees of the St Xavier's Educational Trust - that manages a majority of the group's schools - remain unclear yet. However, he refused to divulge whether the team visited the school in the suburb. "It means Praduman reached the toilet around 8am and the school authority informed him at 8.10am that he was bleeding", Thakur said. In 1983, Augustine Francis Pinto started his first St Xavier's High School in Borivali East, Mumbai with the help of his wife Grace Pinto. "Action has been taken against management and owner of Ryan International School", Education Minister was quoted by The Indian Express.

Amongst many other demands, the anxious parents wanted strict verification of staffers, peons and drivers.

Besides the bullying, she would opt out of bigger schools also because they invest too much on the frills.

In May 2017, the dead body of a class I student was found floating in a reservoir in Vasant Kunj.

"The children travelling by school bus should be the responsibility of the school from the time they board the school bus till they are handed over to their parents", it said.

There's been a flurry of developments related to the gruesome school student murder in Gurugram.

Sexual abuse of children is rampant in India. The attendants should be present at schools half an hour before school hours, the parents demanded. The school and its vicinity has been witness to violent protests by angry parents ever since the murder came to light. However, they were not given anything in writing, he added.

The apex court has also, of its own accord, made a decision to examine whether private schools were implementing guidelines for ensuring safety of their students. How do we make things safe for our kids?
