The SIT averred that the school did not have any separate toilet for staffs like drivers and conductors, while adding that the administration even did not get their employees identification verified.

The protesters also gathered in front of the school demanding a CBI probe in the murder.

Meanwhile, the Gurugram Police has said that only Ashok was involved in the crime.

As a massive outrage prevailed over the shocking incident, police have arrested two top officials of the school while the Supreme Court has accepted a petition from the victim's father for a CBI probe into it.

"Kumar was then produced before a Sohna court, from where he was sent to judicial custody till September 17", the officer said.

Ryan International Group's founding chairman Augustine Pinto, 73, and his wife Grace Pinto, 62, who is the group's managing director, on Monday had approached the high court seeking anticipatory bail apprehending arrest in the case.

The acting principal, who has been detained and is being questioned, is also likely to be arrested. The CBSE said it has formed a committee to investigate the incident. At least 50 people, including nine scribes and photo journalists, were injured on Sunday when police baton-charged a group of protestors in front of the school building on Sunday.

The DGP's directive spelt out measures like police verification of school staff, van drivers/conductors, checking unauthorised entry in schools and deployment of security at entry and exit gates.

The fuming parents not only immediately called upon the local Police to arrest the drunk sweeper, however, they also insisted on setting proper guidelines for ensuring safety for their children. Security has been beefed up at the school premises.

Their counsel Niteen Pradhan mentioned the applications before Justice Ajey Gadkari, who posted them for hearing on Tuesday.

A team of Gurgaon Police arrived in the Maharashtra capital today in connection with its probe into the brutal killing of a 7-year-old student on the campus of Ryan International School in Haryana last week. Haryana Chief Minister had assured that culprits in the case won't be spared. Given the fact that most CCTV cameras installed in the school were non-functional and did not cover the entire school, cracking the case could prove hard for the investigators. The Pintos, in their pleas, said while the death of the boy was unfortunate, the management can not be held culpable and that they themselves were victims of the unfortunate circumstances.
