Prime News, National, Pune, September 9:- Union Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD) Prakash Javadekar on Saturday said that the sad and tragic murder of a second grade student of the Ryan International School in Bhondsi, Haryana, should serve as a warning to the academic fraternity to be more attentive and ensure that such incidents are not repeated.
“The school teachers need to be more attentive, this is kind of a warning. The investigation is going on. Police has reached the accused and I believe that justice will be served soon,” said Javadekar.
He also called on the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to keep an eye on schools running under its supervision.
Javadekar said the government has asked for a report on the incident and his ministry will take necessary steps after going through it.
“Parents leave their kids in buses and leave, but there are so many students in school, we need to think about their safety as well and that’s why I have asked a team that will go when the reports come to us and what remedies could be implemented. This is not just a CBSE issue, but is the question on the children’s safety,” Javadekar said.
Javadekar also said that investigation would be undertaken into how did, the conductor and the driver enter the school premises when parents are not allowed to enter.
He further said that the police investigation report is yet to come.
