On September 9, a seven-year-old student was murdered in Haryana's Ryan International School.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Simardeep Singh, who is also officiating Commissioner of Police in Gurugram, late on Friday night disclosed that Ashok Kumar, bus conductor of Ryan International School, has been arrested.
"Some other pieces of evidence were also tampered with", Khirwar said. Sources said that the SIT has found that most CCTV cameras in the school were not functional and that despite its high fee, the school had not constructed separate toilet facilities for students and support staff like drivers, conductors, peons, etc.
Police resorted to lathi charging on the people who were protesting over the death of 7-year-old Pradyuman. The incident drew mass criticism raising question over the safety and security of students in schools. The liquor shop, situated just 50 metres from the school, was set ablaze and some of the demonstrators threw liquor bottles inside the school premises to vent their ire against the school management, the police said.
Government, school authorities need to learn a lesson that the Gurugram case has chillingly highlighted - the urgent need for the security of children. "Schools have been directed to involve parents too".
The Haryana police has formed fourteen teams to probe the case, which has triggered massive outrage, according to officials.
Delhi police had said that the Vasant Kunj incident did not look like a pre-meditated murder, but a case of utter negligence on the part of school authorities.
The pleas further add that the day-to-day management of each school is taken care by the local staff appointed by the management.
