Ryan International School's CEO moves High Court for pre-arrest bail

Amid raging protests over the gruesome killing of a seven-year-old child in the Ryan International School, Arun, SHO Sadar Police Station, Sohna Road has been suspended with immediate effect last night, reported news agency ANI.

Pinto, his wife Grace Pinto, and their son Ryan Pinto - among the trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust that manages Ryan International Schools - have sought anticipatory bail, which is likely to come up for hearing in the High Court on Tuesday.

The Haryana Police has reached Mumbai to question Ryan Pinto, the CEO of the school, as many security related loopholes have surfaced in his Gurugram-based school. The police teams will again question the bus driver and school gardener, he added. The SC bench also sought a response from the Central Board of Secondary Education on the plea seeking framing of guidelines to fix responsibility of school managements in case of such incidents and also regarding the safety and security of children.

The police also exhumed confidence to satisfy everyone after concluding the investigation. Late evening on September 8, the Gurgaon police had arrested Ashok Kumar, a bus conductor at the school and claimed that he confessed to the murder.

In connection with the murder of an seven-year-old class 2 boy, Pradhyuman Thakur, by a bus conductor in the school toilet, two top officials of Gurgaons' Ryan International School Group have been arrested. The victim's family and parents of other students, however, have been demanding a CBI probe, alleging a bigger cover-up.

Google appeals against huge European Union anti-trust fine
Google has previously said it disagreed with the European Union decision and had indicated it would file an appeal. Google confirmed the appeal to Business Insider but declined to comment further or give any detail.

In a statement here, the journalists body said it strongly condemned "the brutal assault and lathicharge on mediapersons by the Gurugram police while they were on duty covering the protest by enraged parents".

The school management said that it was cooperating to its fullest with the police investigations.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar spoke to Varun Thakur, father of Pradyuman, on Monday and assured him of a CBI investigation.

Following pressure by protesting parents and opposition to act against the school for alleged lapses, the two were arrested. "All that we can do now is wait for the management's next mov", the parent of a Montessori student in the school said.

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.
