He said accused bus conductor Ashok Kumar, 42, carried the child to a vehicle to be shifted to a private hospital.

A Class 2 student of Gurgaon's Ryan International school was on Friday found dead with his throat slit in the toilet. A knife, presumably the murder weapon, was found near the body. His windpipe got severed and hence, he could not scream for help. Following this the father of the deceased student Varun Thakur requested the protesters to maintain peace. Seven-year old's parents are asking for CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe. Being connected to the school since the day of commencement of school, their behaviour is well known and the school declared them as trustworthy.

After the confession and the arrest of the conductor, two students of Ryan International have now come forward as witnesses to the entire incident.

Meanwhile, the police also suspended an SHO for using force against journalists covering the protest outside the school on Sunday.

"All these red flags beg the question whether the trustees, management & Principal of this school should be trusted with the running of a school at all!"
Raghav says it was not.

The report also added that a proper police verification of employees, working at Ryan International School, was not done by the school authorities.

In the case of the Gurugram murder there were so many breaches of security. "It was only after I reached home that I heard he'd been murdered", stated the student. The school authorities have some serious explaining to do here. The accused confessed to killing the child because he resisted his attempts to sexually abuse him. Why did they not suspect anything?

The school, however, insisted that they had fallen prey to unfavourable circumstances.

The ACP of Sohna Road, Haryana has said only the bus conductor Ashok has murdered 7-year-old Pradyuman and no one else is involved in the gruesome act. Haryana Chief Minister had assured that culprits in the case won't be spared. "A separate probe team has left for Mumbai to interrogate school CEO Ryan Pinto and director Augustine Pinto", said Sehgal. The family has moved the High Court through their advocate Niteen Pradhan, who on Monday morning mentioned their pleas before a single judge bench of Justice Ajay Gadkari. Gurugram police must ensure speedy justice by handing out exemplary punishment to the guilty including the Ryan International School management.

Surely, this case is far from resolved. Today Gurgaon police told NDTV that they have recovered CCTV footage from a camera installed outside the toilet, which was one of few functioning. The atmosphere in the school will not let her forget the incident.
