Following the murder of a class 2 boy, security has been beefed up at the Ryan International School, in Bhondsi, Gurugram. The police on Friday arrested Ashok Kumar, a bus conductor employed with the school, in connection with the death of the Class 2 student.
Kumar has been sent on a three-day police remand.
The All India Parents Association has asked that the school be shut down. Reports say that the body has also demanded that the school pay the victim’s family monetary compensation to the tune of Rs 100 crore.
Also, the acting principal of the school, Neeraj Batra, has been suspended.
The security agency of the school has been fired. A special committee has been constituted to investigate the case.
The Officer on Special duty to the Haryana government told reporters that strict action will be taken if the appointed team of police officials finds that the school was to blame for the death.
Parents have gathered outside the school premises in Bhondsi, as well as outside the police commissioner’s office, demanding action against the management and chairman of the school.
