The accused Ashok Kumar has been arrested in the connection with the case even as parents demand a thorough probe into the case.

While huge protests continued for almost 3-4 days at the school's Gurgaon branch, several other parents are coming together to form committees and lay certain basic parameters to ensure security and safety of their children. "The school must take responsibility". There were hundreds of parents who had gathered outside the school in Gurgaon to protest against the management after a school bus conductor allegedly killed a boy after attempting sexual assault.

The body of 7-year-old Pradyuman was found in the school's toilet with his throat slashed on Friday morning, barely an hour after his father had dropped him to school.

We have to make the Trustees of this school accountable for criminal neglect in playing with safety of the children enrolled in their school.

This list should also be put up on the site of the Ministry of Human Resource Development as well as the Education Dept sites of each and every State so that parents & schools have access to the list.

The incident has evoked reactions from various stakeholders, including members of the Bar Association of Sohna, who have collectively decided not to appear on behalf of the accused.

On the other hand, Ryan Pinto's lawyer Nitin Pradhan has said that he is not going to "speculate" anything. "Always remind yourself that you are a chosen child of God and a King/Queen in the making".

When medics arrived, they tried to resuscitate the Marine, but it was too late. He was deployed with the 11 Marine Expeditionary Unit in early 2016.

The apex court has also, of its own accord, made a decision to examine whether private schools were implementing guidelines for ensuring safety of their students. Despite repeated calls and messages, Neti Srinivasan, spokesperson of the Ryan Group did not respond and remained unavailable for comment.

The horrifying event caused ripples across social media and among the parents, who protested the school's lack of security. Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala lashed out at the M.L. Khattar government and said it had been lax in not implementing the safety guidelines for schools. Teachers and staff from the school were questioned at the school and the principal, Neerja Batra, was detained and questioned till after midnight on Monday. "The process hardly costs extra and ensures a legitimate background check". "It was only after I reached home that I heard he'd been murdered", stated the student. He will be produced in a Gurugram special court on September 18.

"My child is in play school".

Two school officials have been held after the investigations pointed out that there had been security lapses.

The angry parents have been attacking the management for the negligence.

But, on Tuesday, senior police official Biren Singh clarified that Ashok is the only suspect in the case and that noone else is under the scanner now. "When we inspected the water tank, two spectacles, balls, pens and pencils were found". The possible danger was known to the school authorities, but no preventive steps were taken.
