Pradyuman's father, however, approached the Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe, which prompted the top court to seek responses from the Centre and the Haryana government.

A wire copy said the Haryana government has directed the Gurgaon Police to book the owner of Ryan International under the Juvenile Justice Act.

Pradhuman, a Class 2 student, was found dead by a school staff in the washroom with his throat slit.

Augustine Pinto and his wife Grace, who is also the managing director of the institution had moved the Bombay High Court for anticipatory bail today. He has now been remanded in judicial custody till September 18.

Justice Ajey Gadkari said, "The applicants shall not be arrested till tomorrow".

Police have detained the acting principal Neerja Batra for questioning in connection with the gruesome murder. Investigation suggests that the time between the child entering the bathroom and being discovered was about five minutes, leaving little time for Kumar to commit the murder, clean the weapon, rush out of the bathroom without being noticed, and return when the body was discovered. The second is the involvement of the school administration and management.

The principal and a few teachers of the Ryan International School in Gurugram have been arrested where a 7-year-old boy was found murdered in the school washroom, as an investigation team found several serious security lapses at the school.

Parents submitted a complaint to the Delhi Police about lack of security on and around school premises, alleging that CCTV cameras are non-functional and there is no restriction on the entry of outsiders into schools. Advocate Kulbhushan Bharadwaj said parents trust the school authorities and leave kids with them for hours.

Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda told PTI, "People's anger in this case is a natural reaction". 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.
