Ryan murder: Haryana government orders CBI probe, takes over school management

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that his government will strive to generate employment in the state.

The government will take over the management of Ryan International School's Sohna Road Branch in Gurgaon for 3 months. "The case is handed over to CBI for investigation", the Chief Minister told the media after a brief meeting with the parents of the victim.

The top court notice came days after a 7-year-old student Pradhyuman was murdered brutally inside the premises of Ryan International School.

The Gurugram Police has so far arrested bus driver Ashok Kumar, presenting him as the main accused in the case.

He said keeping in view the situation in the wake of case, the deputy commissioner, Gurgaon has been appointed as the Administrator of Ryan International School in Bhondsi for three months.

"This incident (the murder of Pradhyumn) was unfortunate".


Pradyuman's father Varun thanked the CM for ordering a CBI probe.

"The Haryana Police has been properly conducting a probe into this case". Speaking to reporters outside their residence, he condemned the incident and said the CBI will take over the investigation from the Haryana Police.

The school's principal was suspended on September 9 amid protests by agitated parents. I doubt that some others may also be involved in this murder.

Meanwhile, Ryan Pinto, the chief executive officer of the Ryan group, has filed the anticipatory bail plea in the Bombay High Court to ward off his possible arrest.

He said the safety measures included safe transportation of children with female escort and maintenance of entry and exit records of all visitors to schools.

Details from the CCTV footage seized by the police from Gurgaon's Artemis Hospital where the child was taken after he was found lying in a pool of blood by school authorities has shown that Pradyuman was wheeled into the hospital nearly 33 minutes after he was attacked.
