Ryan school class 2 murder: No sexual assault, boy died of excessive bleeding

The post mortem report of class 2 student of Ryan International School who was murdered few days ago by a school bus conductor and found lying in a pool of blood in the toilet reveal that there was no attempt of sexual assault and the boy died due to excessive bleeding, the doctor who conducted the post-mortem said on Tuesday

Pradyuman was slit on the neck twice with a knife and one of the wounds was too deep which cut his nerve and the boy could not even cry for help.

"Only Ashok, the 42 year old conductor murdered Pradyuman, no other person is involved," said senior police officer Birem Singh. The officer said during questioning, two children said Ashok was present in the toilet before the incident.

The Women and Child Development ministry said Union minister Maneka Gandhi has requested Prakash Javadekar, the Human Resources Development Minister, to consider several suggestions.

Among the measures suggested are having women employees as support staff in schools and school buses, having strict norms for employing them and screening educational films on child sexual abuse in schools.

During the court hearing of the brutal murder, 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 the 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.

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.
