The death of a class 2 student of the Ryan International School in Gurgaon (Sohna) area this morning has left the parents of other students agitated while the father of the deceased boy is calling it a clear case of murder. While talking to ANI following the death of his son, Varun Thakur said that he doesn’t know what exactly happened but it was definitely murder. “It is a clear case of murder, don’t know what happened but I am sure its murder,” Thakur was quoted saying. He further accused the school administration of negligence. While speaking to PTI, Varun said that he wasn’t informed about his son’s death initially. “They told me his health deteriorated suddenly. They did not take care of my son. He could have been saved if he had been taken to hospital in time,” he said.

The 7-year-old student was found dead lying in the pool of blood in a toilet in the school building around 8:30 am, reported PTI. “The students alerted the teachers and the school management then informed police, who rushed him to Artemis Hospital. He was declared brought dead by doctors,” Ravinder Kumar, PRO Gurgaon Police, said.

It is being speculated that it was a case of murder and the police is investigating the matter. According to the TV reports, around 10 people including a bus driver and conductor are being quizzed by the police. Some parents have also complained that the toilet in which the dead body was found, was being used by the drivers as well as peons of the school. A police team, including forensic experts, is probing the case and has collected blood samples and finger prints from the scene. A knife with blood stains was also recovered from the spot.

“We are investigating the case from all angles … of homicide, enmity and others. The police team is examining the CCTV footage from over 30 cameras installed on the school premises,” the officer said. Staff members and classmates of Thakur, who hailed from the Bhondsi area, are being questioned, Ravinder Kumar added.
