The school owners - founder Augustine Francis Pinto, MD Grace Pinto and CEO Ryan Pinto -- are based in Mumbai and had earlier approached the Bombay High Court seeking pre-arrest bail till they could move the court concerned in Haryana.

 

 

However, the Bombay HC had on Thursday rejected their bail plea.

The northern zone head of Ryan International Group, Francis Thomas, who was arrested by the Haryana Police in the case, also moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking regular bail.

Thomas along with the school's HR Head, Jeyus Thomas, were arrested by Gurugram police on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, the Ryan International School will remain closed till September 25 as the family of Pradhuman Thakur raised apprehensions about vital evidence being destroyed.
