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.

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.

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.
