A Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted to look into the murder case of the seven-year-old Gurugram student, had pointed out serious security lapses in the school. However, the doctors claimed he died within two minutes of the attack. “The administration has nabbed suspect; directed authorities to complete formalities within 7 days”. “Later I saw them taking a child to the hospital in a Wagon R vehicle”.
“I did not see any suspicious activities of Ashok Kumar and he was behaving normally although his shirt was also soaked in blood as he carried Pradhuman”. The school claimed that the boy studying in class 1 went missing from his classroom and was found in the water tank two hours later.
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. The official said more details would be provided later.
Ryan International Group CEO Ryan Pinto and his parents, who are its founders, approached the Bombay High Court on Monday to seek anticipatory bail in connection with the child’s murder in the chain’s Gurgaon school.
On the other hand, Ryan Pinto’s lawyer Nitin Pradhan has said that he is not going to “speculate” anything.
The arrests come after hundreds of parents and locals protested against the school on the weekend, demanding action against the school management.
“The victim after being stabbed in his neck, struggled and crawled taking the help of walls outside the toilet when a fellow student and the gardener noticed him”, said Ashok Bakshi, deputy commissioner of police, south Gurgaon to the media.
Gurugram: Bus conductor Ashok Kumar being escorted by police.A witness has cast doubt on whether the employee was responsible for the death of seven-year-old Praduman Thakur.
Meanwhile, an investigation officer in the case said, police were satisfied with the questioning of accused bus-conductor and his police remand has ended. On further detailed checks, parents discovered that the police verification register at the school office, mentioned that there had been no police verification for the support staffs. ID address proofs were also found to be missing from the school records.
“His application for anticipatory bail is in process and will be filed soon”, added Pradhan. But incident after incident points to laxity about the security of our kids despite the high fees in many “International” schools.
Police also consulted a team of medical experts to ascertain whether it was possible for a child with such grievous injuries to walk up to the entrance of the toilet.
