Acting principal of Ryan International School suspended, security staff removed


The acting principal of Ryan International School in Gurgaon suspended on Saturday and all the security staff were removed, a day after a Class 2 student was found dead with his throat slit inside the school toilet.

This after angry parents and locals staged protests outside the school premises for over two hours demanding a CBI probe into the gruesome murder while expressing their displeasure over the investigation being carried out by the Gurgaon Police.

They also demanded that the school management be booked for the murder of boy.

“The Ryan International School management has suspended acting principal Neerja Batra and removed all the security staff,” District Public Relation Officer R S Sangwan was quoted by PTI.

The boy, a Class II student, was allegedly killed by a bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, who also tried to sexually abuse the minor. The accused was arrested hours after the gruesome murder.

Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon, Vinay Pratap Singh has also asked District Education Officer Neelam Bhandari to submit a detailed report on the matter by tomorrow.

The post mortem was carried out and the boy’s body was handed over to his father, officials said.

The boy’s father, Varun Thakur, who works as a quality manager with a private firm in Gurgaon, had accused the school administration of negligence.
