CBSE seeks report from school management within two days
Over the killing of a seven-year-old student in Gurugram’s Ryan International School, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) formed a two-member fact finding committee to probe the case on Saturday and also sought a report from the school management within two days.
The move comes following outrage among parents after the student was found with his throat slit in the school washroom on Friday morning. "A two-member fact finding committee has been set up to enquire into the tragic murder of the student in the school premises. The school has also been asked to submit a report within two days along with the copy of the FIR," a senior board official said.
"V Arun Kumar, principal of Govt Senior Secondary School in Preet Vihar and Kailash Chand, Deputy Commissioner at KVS, have been appointed as the panel members. The panel will have to visit the school within 30 days and submit a report no later than October 16," the official added. SR
The panel will probe whether the death occurred due to negligence on the part of the school authorities and if the school had adopted all safety measures as per CBSE affiliation by-laws. Its report will also dwell on whether the authorities reported the incident to police and the district education officer, besides the circumstances leading to the death of the student.
Earlier on Saturday, the acting principal of Ryan International School here was suspended and all the security staff was also withdrawn. Angry parents and locals gathered outside the school premises on Saturday morning and protested for over two hours demanding a CBI probe into the gruesome murder while expressing dissatisfaction over the investigation being carried out by the Gurgaon Police.
They also demanded that the school management be booked for the killing of the boy. Police said the Class II student was allegedly killed by a bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, who also tried to sexually abuse him. The accused was arrested hours after the gruesome murder. Kumar was remanded in police custody for three days by the Gurgaon Civil Court.
The incident on Friday is not a first for Ryan International School. On January 20, 2016, a six-year-old student, Devansh Kakrora, of Ryan International School, Vasant Kunj died after he allegedly fell into a water tank.
