THE CBSE on Saturday formed a two-member fact finding committee to probe the killing of a seven-year-old student in Gurgaon’s Ryan International School and sought a report from its management within two days.
The move by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) comes following outrage among parents after the student was found with his throat slit in the school washroom on Friday.

“A two-member fact finding committee has been set up to enquire into the tragic murder of the student in the school premises. The school has also been asked to submit a report within two days along with the copy of the FIR,” a senior board official said. “V Arun Kumar, Principal of Govt Senior Secondary School in Preet Vihar and Kailash Chand, Deputy Commissioner at KVS, have been appointed as the panel members. The panel will have to visit the school within 30 days and submit a report no later than October 16,” the official added.

The panel will probe whether the death occurred due to negligence on the part of the school authorities and if the school had adopted all safety measures as per CBSE affiliation bye-laws.

Its report will also dwell on whether the authorities reported the incident to police and the district education officer, besides the circumstances leading to the death of the student. Earlier on Saturday, the acting principal of Ryan International School here was suspended and all the security staff were removed.

Meanwhile, the police on Saturday promised to conclude investigations and file a chargesheet within seven days in the gruesome murder of a seven-year-old in a Gurgaon school on Friday, an incident that sent shockwaves across the country.

The district authorities also formed a three-member panel to find out if Ryan International School, Bhondsi, had followed security norms. The Manohar Lal Khattar led Haryana Government, meanwhile, ordered a security review of schools across the state.

Gurgaon Police Commissioner Sandeep Khirwar claimed that arrested schoolbus conductor Ashok Kumar’s involvement as the perpetrator of the heinous crime had come to the fore clearly. We will demand the constitution of a special court for a fast track trial in this case so that the accused can be given a strict punishment, Khirwar said.
Earlier in the day a local court remanded Kumar to three days in police custody.
The accused spoke to some TV channels and on being
asked whether he had committed the crime responded in the affirmative.
