Gurgaon Police has detained the Ryan International School gardener and key witness in the school boy murder case, Harpal Singh and is likely to arrest some more persons in connection with the case, a senior SIT officer said. The Gurgaon Police’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) detained the gardener on Wednesday.

“The SIT does not want to leave out a single piece of evidence which can be important and work as a key breakthrough for us to solve this case. With three days left for submission of charge sheet in court, we have got possible positive leads against the accused school bus conductor Ashok Kumar,” a senior SIT officer told PTI.

SIT teams on Wednesday searched the school in Gurugram for clues to the crime while a CBSE panel also inspected the premises to examine loopholes in security arrangements. Besides Harpal Singh, the SIT has questioned 17 persons including section inchage-Anju Dudeja, suspended acting principal-Neerja Batra, former principal Rakhi Verma, bus driver Saurabh Raghav, bus contractor Harkesh Pradhan and eight security guards.

The officer said questioning of all suspects who are on the police radar whether it is the suspended school principal, senior management officials, or staff members, is being conducted. “Some more arrests are likely to be made,” he said. The seven-year-old boy was found with his throat slit in the washroom of the school on Friday last.

      It is so easy to arrest and detain a gardener. This poor gardener can now be interrogated, tortured because he cannot afford to have a lawer....the rich are out on bail.

        Please Stand up for other small Cities / Town also because childrens are not being killed only at Ryan School, they're murdered / ually abused in small Cities / Town Private schools poor govt. schools too. As there Police is totally corrupt and Media is dull, so poor Parents do not go for complaints. The school Management is controlled by rich Politicians.

          Absolutely correct. Media only servers for the middle and higher middle class. There are so many incidents happening with the poor families and kids but not attention. Daily small girls are raped, kids are abused but there is no one to raise for their problems. If we start solving poor people's problems, such incidents will never happen in any class.

            are u fuc king kidding me? only poor poor is what i hear from everyones mouth. newspapers love to showcase poor peoples plight and misery, it gives them huge ratings. politicians only tend to serve them for vote-bank politics, in turn for which(POOR) they get free food, no tax on income and other benefits(cash and otherwise). now there is even a proposal for universal income to these lazy farts who would rather smoke and drink in the fields rather than work. it was an okay excuse 60 years ago , but no one is stopping them from becoming rich. they choose to remain poor by not working and enjoying free benefits. in actuality govt needs to start taxing farmers, stop all benefit programs, make health and education free(they wont coz then their vote bank disappears as they become self sufficient). so these lazy bast ards would actually do something productive for the country.its government fault but more so than those poor people for not choosing their electives responsibly.
