Prime News, National (New Delhi), September 13:-  Two senior officials of the Ryan International School here have been arrested in connection with the brutal murder of a seven-year-old boy in the school premises last week that sparked massive public outrage.

As police set up at least a dozen teams to probe the brutal murder of Pradhuman and shaken parents associations of Ryan International Schools in Mumbai, Delhi, Noida and other places protested seeking their children’s safety, the Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to the Central and Haryana governments on a plea by the boy’s father seeking a CBI probe into the September 8 killing of his son who was found with his throat slit in a school washroom.

Police said they also questioned the school staff even as a separate probe team team left for Mumbai to interrogate school CEO Ryan Pinto and director Augustine Pinto.

A senior Gurugram police officer told IANS that the school’s northern India head Francis Thomas and HR head Jeyus Thomas were arrested on Sunday night after their questioning.

“Francis Thomas and Jeyus Thomas were arrested under the Juvenile Justice Act,” the police officer said.

Both were produced before the court of Judicial Magistrate, first class, Mohammed Zakkaria, who sent them to two days police custody. Police also accused both of tampering with evidence. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
