Class 2 student murder: School authorities tried to clean away blood from floor, police say

During the court hearing of the class 2 student’s brutal murder in the school toilet, police said that the school authorities tried to wipe off all evidences of murder by trying to clean the blood that spilled on the walls and floor of the boy’s toilet in Ryan International School.

Two top members of the school management was arrested on Sunday for mishap in the school security system. Francis Thomas, regional head of the group, and HR head Jayesh Thomas were arrested on Sunday night and booked under section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act.

Francis has also been booked in another case involving the drowning of a boy in a water tank at Ryan International School in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area. Six-year-old Devansh Meena went missing on January 30, 2016, and his body was recovered the same day from a water tank in the school, reports Hindustan Times.

49 year old Ryan school bus conductor was arrested for the murder of class 2 student after a attempt of sexual assault. He confessed his crime to the authorities. A report by a three-member Special Investigation Team (SIT) has said many of the CCTV cameras installed in the school campus were not working. The team also found that there were no separate toilets for school bus conductors and drivers, which meant they went to the same toilet used by students.

SIT also found that the school management hired staff without proper background checks and police verification.

Ryan Pinto, CEO of Ryan International Schools Group, said the school should not be held "culpable of a crime where it is itself a victim of unfortunate circumstances."

Haryana's Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharm said the school is charged under Section 75 of the juvenile justice act, a provision in the law that deals with cruelty against children.
