Earlier this week, Gurugram district administration had asked the Haryana government to take over the reins of Ryan International School after the brutal murder of a class 2 student inside the washroom.

"This incident (the murder of Pradhyumn) was unfortunate".

"State government will look after the management of the school for three months", he told reporters here. Pradyuman's family says its demand for a CBI probe is not directed at Pinto's family or any particular person.

Meanwhile, CBI, which will begin its probe into the case, will file a fresh chargesheet and has sought fresh custody of the accused.

"I would appeal to the CBI to complete the investigation as soon as possible and bring the culprits to book", he added. "Kumar's clothes didn't have any blood stains on them", said Harpal, a gardener in the school.

The officer said all suspects who are on the police radar, whether it is the suspended school principal, senior management officials or staff members, are being questioned.

His father, Varun Thakur, had moved the Supreme Court for a CBI probe into the case citing "too many loopholes" in the police theory and the school management's stand on the murder.

"In future, the schools should ensure that such incidents did not occur in their premises", he said. A conductor of the school bus was arrested for the crime.

Additional Chief Secretary, School Education Department, K K Khandelwal said regulations have been framed on the safety aspect for all schools, including the private aided and unaided schools. He added that the Haryana government has made a decision to amend the Act related to rules and regulations for safety of students in schools in the ensuing Vidhan Sabha session.

There would be proper attendance, reporting of absentees and compulsory ID cards for staff and students while special attention would be paid to accident and abuse-prone areas inside schools, he said.
