Ryan regional head sent to police remand till Sep 16
Francis Thomas, the northern India head of Ryan International School, was sent to police remand till September 16 while coordinator and Human Resource (HR) chief Jeyus Thomas has been sent to judicial custody till September 18. Both were arrested late on Sunday night under Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act.
“Francis Thomas was the northern India head of the school. We have yet to recover some documents from his possession. Our interrogation is still not complete. The investigation of the case is at an initial stage and we cannot give further information,” ACP (Sohna), Brehim Singh said.
“We want to check who was coordinating with the Bhondsi campus as the acting principal had already informed the higher management about the loopholes in the school's security. If a higher ranking person of the school management is responsible for the security lapses, strict action will be taken against him," Commissioner of Gurugram Police, Sandeep Khirwar, said.
The Forensic Sciences Laboratory (FSL) team from Rohtak also visited the campus on Wednesday for investigation. Police said the experts of the team also took some samples from the spot for further investigation.
Meanwhile, a team of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) also visited the school campus and checked the security provisions. Earlier, a three member committee of the Gurugram administration submitted its report to the Deputy Commissioner, Vinay Pratap Singh, in which it cited several security loopholes.
Meanwhile, the Director General of Haryana Police (DGP), BS Sandhu on Wednesday ordered a probe into the lathi charge on journalists on September 10, when they were covering a protest against the school.
“The enquiry is being conducted by Deepak Gahlawat, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP)-Headquarters, Gurugram," Ravinder Kumar, spokesperson Gurugram Police, said.
However, the Sector-31 and 40 branches of Ryan International School are open while the Bhondsi branch would be closed for a few more days. Hundreds of parents protested against the school administration demanding to check the security arrangements in the school before letting their children enter the school premises.
"What occurred with Pradyuman could have happened with any other child. We came here only after an assurance from the school administration that our kids are safe in their schools," Neelam Kumar, a parent said.
On Wednesday, the presence of the children in both the branches was very short. Later at the Sector-40 branch, the parents entered the school along with area Station House Officer and checked school security.
They said there was no separate toilet for the non-teaching staff at this branch also. Plus, the CCTV cameras location was not appropriate.
The SHO of Sector-40 Sudhir Kumar said, "We have checked the security arrangements of the school. It was still not up to the mark but we have decided to deploy our police personnel for the time being so that the children feel safe."
"We are concerned about the security of the students in our premises and it is our responsibility to look after them. We are in touch with the administration and all necessary arrangements are being stepped up for students security," an official with the school’s Sector-31 branch, said.
