Ryan International school Gurgaon murder: CBSE released a notice which said that Pradyuman Thakur’s death could have been averted if the school authorities had discharged their duties with responsibility, care and sincerity, reported PTI. From the entire sequence of events it appears that the school is guilty of gross negligence and failed to ensure safety and security of students in its schools,” the notice said. School failed to discharge its responsibility to file FIR and inform District Education Officer and CBSE after knowing the incident,” the board said, adding that the FIR was subsequently filed by a parent. The comments came a day after a two-member fact-finding committee set up by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) flagged several violations of safety guidelines by Bhondsi branch of Ryan International School.

The education board has also decided to serve a show cause notice to the school. In the notice, the board is seeking an explanation on why the affiliation of school should not be revoked. As per Indian Express sources, the notice will be issued to the school authorities by Saturday evening.

CBSE’s affiliation bye-laws state that a school cannot extend the deadline for responding to a disaffiliation notice by more than a month. On Friday, Indian Express first reported that the board panel found that the bus drivers and conductors were using the same toilets that were meant for the students. It further found out that there was a breach in the school boundary wall, which was covered in barb wires, and poses a threat to the safety of children, as it allows anyone to enter the school premises.

Meanwhile, the Postmortem report of Pradyuman Thakur has revealed that “shock and hemorrhage” were the cause of his death, according to ANI. The report also noted that external injury caused by single-edged sharp weapon and its consequences were enough to cause death in normal case of nature, as per the news agency. Meanwhile, Gurugram Deputy Commissioner, Vinay Pratap Singh today said he hopes to reopen school from Monday.
