Ryan International School in Gurugram reopened on Monday, 10 days after the murder of a 7-year-old boy in the school premises. The father of the victim has alleged that after the school administration will be taken over by the Gurgaon deputy commissioner the administration will try to erase all evidence in the case.
After the school reopened on Monday, many parents were seen queuing up to collect Transfer Certificate (TC) of their wards as they felt that the school authorities failed to keep their child safe.
Last week, the Haryana government announced that it would be taking over the school management until the situation will come back to normal. Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar had also ordered a CBI probe in this matter.
On September 8, Pradhuman Thakur was found with his throat slit in the washroom of the school in the Bhondsi on the Sohna road. A bus driver, Ashok Kumar has been arrested in connection with the case.
“Pradhuman’s father on Sunday expressed the concern that the reopening of the school will erase all the evidences related to the case. This will also have direct consequences on the CBI’s investigation,” Thakur’s lawyer Susheel Tekriwala said.
“Due to this the school should remain close till the investigations are not completed,” he added.
