CBSE yet to take any action against Ryan school

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is yet to take any action against Ryan International School, Gurugram, even as the mystery over the murder of a seven-year old student in the campus deepened further on Wednesday.

The CBI detained a Class XI student of the school in connection with the case on Wednesday, days after the Gurugram police claimed that a bus conductor of the school committed the crime.

Official sources in the CBSE said Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh, who is now an administrator of the school since its management was taken over by the district administration in wake of the murder of Class II student Pradhuman Thakur in the first week September, has recently submitted a report to the board.

"The board is examining the report and will take appropriate action on the basis of it," they maintained.

The CBSE issued a show cause notice to the Ryan International School management on September 16, asking why its affiliation should not be withdrawn.

In its show cause notice, the board noted that there was a "wilful" violation of the affiliation rules by the school management, which led to Pradhuman's murder.

The board asked the manager of the school to submit a reply to the show cause within 15 days.

Responding to the notice, sources said, the Gurugram deputy commissioner submitted a report to the CBSE earlier this month as the administrator of the school, stating that all the deficiencies pointed out by the board with regard to ensuring the safety of the school's students, have been rectified.

In his report, he also stated that the affiliation of the school may not be withdrawn in view of the corrective measures taken under him. The CBI's probe has raised a question mark on the investigation of the case by the Gurugram police.
