Ryan school death: Child's father moves HC
Barun Chandra Thakur, the grieving father of seven-year-old Pradhyuman Thakur who was murdered Ryan International School at Gurugram on September 8, on Wednesday made an intervening application before the Bombay High Court, seeking dismissal of the anticipatory transit bail plea filed by the three school trustees.
The high court adjourned the hearing of a petition made by three trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust that manages Ryan International Schools across the country, after the father of the slain child made an intervening application through his lawyers Sushil K. Tekriwal and Mamta Tekriwal.
Thakur sought the dismissal of anticipatory transit bail plea made by Augustine F. Pinto, his wife Grace Pinto, and their son Ryan Pinto, who are among the trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust, in connection with the ongoing investigations into the death of Pradhyuman.
Pradhuman Thakur was found lying in a pool of blood in a toilet in the school building around 8:30 am on Friday last.
At the brief hearing held in the court of Justice A S Gadkari, Pintos’ lawyer Nitin Pradhan argued that his clients had not been served the notices by the lawyers of Thakur who sought to intervene in the matter.
However, Thakur’s lawyers claimed that they had served the notices, but the Pintos’ lawyers refused to accept them.
After hearing both sides, Justice Gadkari adjourned the hearing of the anticipatory bail plea matter till Thursday morning.
The Parents Group for Students Welfare (PGSW) and the Ambedkar Students Association are two other intervenors in the anticipatory bail application filed by the three school trustees.
On Monday, Pintos had moved the Bombay High Court for an anticipatory transit bail so as to facilitate them to move an appropriate judicial authority in Haryana. Pintos’ application had come up for hearing on Tuesday but was adjourned to Wednesday.
Thakur had earlier on Monday filed a petition in the the Supreme Court, seeking a CBI inquiry into the death of his son. A SC bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud sought the replies of the Centre, the Haryana Government and CBSE.
The school, where Pradhyman was found murdered, is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education. Apart from a CBI probe, Thakur has sought guidelines to fix responsibility of school managements.
Meanwhile, a visiting Haryana Police team on Tuesday questioned several staffers and manager of the Ryan International School at its Kandivali headquarters in north Mumbai, examined documents and records.
