Ryan trustees bail plea: Victim's father intervenes in Bombay HC

The bail plea of the trustees of the St. Xaviers Education Trust - which manages the Ryan International Schools across India is expected to come up for hearing later Wednesday afternoon.

Ryan student murder case: The court had granted interim protection from arrest to the founding chairman and managing director of Ryan International Group of Institutions till Wednesday.

"If the top management of the school can share in the plunder and prosperity, why should they be sceptical in subjecting themselves to the clutches of law and the rule of law and to the vicarious liability when due to their negligence and ignorance, the incidents like of Pradyuman take place within the walls of a school", he said in the application.

Additional Public Prosecutor Aruna Pai Kamath opposed the plea and sought time to file a detailed reply.

The three had sought anticipatory bail in the Bombay High Court on Monday.

Additional public prosecutor Aruna Kamat Pai told the HC that the court would have to also issue notice and hear the Haryana government as the offence in connection with the boy's killing is registered there.

After the brief hearing, Justice A.S. Gadkari adjourned the bail plea matter till Thursday morning, said lawyer Manoj Dhall, who is representing another another intervenor, the Parents Group for Students Welfare (PGSW). Parents of the student took the school management to court for targeting the child in school and eventually suspending him.

Their counsel Niteen Pradhan had yesterday said that along with Augustine Pinto and Grace Pinto, their son Ryan Pinto, the group's CEO, also filed an anticipatory bail plea.

Moreover, he said, the CCTV cameras installed in the school premises helped nab the accused.

The team comprised Inspector Anand Kumar and Assistant Sub-Inspector Madan Singh.

On Sunday night, Haryana police officers arrested two top officials of the Ryan International School Group identified as Francis Thomas, regional head of the Ryan Group of Institutions, and HR head Jeyus Thomas under section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act.

Meanwhile, a two-member Haryana police team questioned the staffers at Ryan's Kandivli branch for nine hours on Tuesday. They approached the Samta Nagar police, who then made arrangements at the school to prevent any untoward situation.

Ashok Kumar, a 42-year-old bus conductor, was arrested after publicly confessing to slitting the throat of seven-year-old Pradyumna Thakur at the Gurugram campus of the school, after he had tried to sexually abuse him inside the toilet.
