Ryan school murder: Hours after reopening, school shuts for another week; to restart on Sep 25


Ryan International School in Gurugram will be closed for another week, hours after the school announced that it had reopened for the students. Reports say that the school will reopen on September 25.

The school had reopened on Monday  for the first time today after Pradyuman Thakur's murder. His parents have opposed the re-opening of school.

“The CBI is yet to take charge of investigation and visit the crime place, as well as sanitise the school premises. At this stage, opening the school hastily shall not be a wise decision,” Barun Thakur wrote and added that it would affect "destruction of the entire available evidences, forensic materials and devastation of entire scene of crime."

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar last Monday promised for a CBI-led investigation into the case.

Meanwhile, accused conductor Ashok, Ryan International Group's northern zone head and Human Resource head were produced in a special POCSO court on Monday.

On September 8, seven-year-old Pradyuman was found dead inside the toilet of the Ryan International School, Gurugram, with his throat slit.

Following the incident, the school’s bus conductor was convicted of the crime, but the case took a complicated turn after family of the accused claimed that he was being wrongly framed and that the school authorities were trying to mislead.

Various campuses of the school were closed for a few days, following the furore that erupted after parents took to streets in a bid to protest against the lack of security for children inside the school premises.
