The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday denied anticipatory bail to the founding chairman of Ryan International Group of Institutions Augustine Pinto, the group’s managing director Grace Pinto and their son Ryan Pinto. Justice Inderjit Singh refused to grant interim protection to the school trustees and issued notice to Haryana government for the state’s version in the case. The case has been adjourned for Monday.

The trustees of the Ryan International Group of Institutions had, on Saturday, approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court for anticipatory bail in the murder case of a seven-year-old student in the Gurgaon school, saying that the “basic tenets of criminal liability are not swept up in the name of sentiments of the community” and alleging that an “unprecedented media blitz” has been unleashed in the case.

In their plea, the trustees had said it is “unimaginable” that they could be involved in the alleged crime and be charged with the offences stated in the FIR. “The petitioner apprehends that the probe agencies may, under pressure from the wrath of public opinion, fail to fully appreciate the legal position. Notwithstanding the diabolical nature of the crime… the ends of justice call for an objective evaluation of the circumstances,” they had said in the plea, filed through senior advocate R S Cheema and advocate Arshdeep Singh Cheema.

Class II student Pradyuman Thakur was found with his throat slit inside the washroom of Ryan International School, Bhondsi, on September 8. Police had registered an FIR under IPC sections 302 (murder) and 25 of the Arms Act. Later, sections 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act and 12 of the POCSO Act were added.

      It is time that the school management is taken over by CBSE for the sake of existing students and their parents investment on these kids. After all the assets of the school is from kids fees and building donations collected from them illegally by these thugs using some catch phrase like international and some english name like ryan to make it appear foreign for which most of gullible Indian parents fall for. Crack on all these illegal businesses. Education business have to be non profit with a strict guide line of remunerations to staff and all other funds have to funneled through to school facilities are increasing capacity of the school. No money to board members apart from nominal fee for board meetings. All these have to be regulated through Central ministry. End of the day these goa or mangalorian Christians or anglo indian Christians are nothing but butlers in english regime and in congress time they all become scholars. What a India it has become.

        Don't understand logic here. How can trustees of schools chain who are located thousands of kilometers away be arrested for murder by some outsider. It is like saying that for every murder that happens anywhere in State, Chief Minister should be arrested.

          If it's proved that guidelines for toilets and security were not followed by prin l because she was denied funds by trustees , they would be culpable.
