Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today urged the people to ensure that there was no environment of fear in the aftermath of the brutal killing of a seven-year-old boy in a Gurgaon school.

He said his “humble request” was that as there were lakhs of schools in the country, an “environment of fear” should not be created and the children should continue to go to school.

When pointed out that parents were scared to send their children to school, Prasad said the Gurgaon incident was an unfortunate one, which should not have occurred.

“The administration is taking action. The chief minister (of Haryana) is taking action. All of us are concerned. But I have a humble request that we should try to ensure that there is no environment of fear as there are lakhs of schools,” he said.
