Ryan School murder case : Owners fail to get anticipatory bail

The owners of Ryan International School, where a seven-year-old boy was murdered earlier this month, failed to get protection from arrest today as the Punjab and Haryana High Court issued notice to Haryana on their request for bail and posted the case to Monday.

On September 8, Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student of the Ryan International school in Gurgaon, was found with his throat slit after he visited a toilet near his classroom. A school bus conductor believed to be present in the toilet has been arrested.

Yesterday, another judge, AB Chaudhari, withdrew from the case, reportedly on grounds that he knows the Pintos and it wouldn’t be fair for him to hear their petition. The Pintos moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court after the Bombay High Court rejected their request for protection from arrest on September 14.
