Ryan reopens after 10 days, sceptic parents drop children to school

Gurugram, Sep 18: Nervous parents holding the tender fingers of their children dropped their children at the gate of Gurgaon's Ryan International. It was very painful as the memories of the brutal murder of innocent Pradhuman Thakur was still fresh. But then there was a relief that the government is keeping a close watch on the school.

The Ryan International School, where a seven-year-old boy was found murdered inside a washroom on September 8, reopened on Monday after the Haryana government suspended the management and appointed Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh as its new administrator.

The media have been barred from entering the school premises in Bhondsi on Sohna road as it can cause "undue disturbances". The government has ordered a CBI inquiry into the killing of Pradhuman Thakur of Class 2 who was found with his throat slit inside the school within an hour after his father dropped him there. The father, Varun Chandra Thakur, has moved the Supreme Court over his son's murder, demanding that the school should remain closed until the CBI completes its probe into his son's murder. He said there was a possibility of evidence tampering with the re-opening of the school.
