Gurgaon: The three-member fact finding committee, formed after a seven-year-old boy was murdered in a washroom of Ryan International School, has found major security lapses on part of its management, Haryana Education Minister Rambilas Sharma said.
He said on Sunday that the committee, headed by the District Education Officer, would submit its report to the Gurgaon Police and Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh. Sharma said that the committee has found that there were no separate toilets and washrooms for the 40 bus drivers and conductors of the school.
"They had to use the students' toilets. No frisking of bus drivers and conductors were done. No security checking system was found in the school. No CCTV cameras were installed covering each and every corner inside school," the minister said.
Also, he said that one could easily enter into or get out of the school premises after climbing over the boundary walls "The windows and grills of the students' toilet, in which the Class 2 student Praduman was killed, was found broken," he added. The Education minister also said that the top management and proprietors of school would also come under the ambit of FIR as their negligence appeared clearly in the brutal murder of seven-year-old Praduman Thakur.
Assuring the parents, protesting against the brutal killing and demanding strict action against the school management, the minister said that the guilty would be brought to justice and "if parents of the child insist on a CBI probe, the government will accept it."
The seven-year-old Pradyuman who used to study at the Ryan International School was allegedly killed by the school bus conductor, who was arrested on Friday.
Meanwhile, all campuses of Ryan International School in Gurugram will remain close on Monday and Tuesday amid protests, as per state Government order.
