Fourteen police teams constituted to probe the case, which has sparked huge public outrage, are questioning the school staff while an SIT team is headed to Mumbai to interrogate school CEO Ryan Pinto and director Albert Pinto.

Gurgaon police spokesperson Ravinder Kumar told the BBC that the human resources manager and the northern India head of the Ryan International School Group had been arrested for failing to provide security to students.

They had yesterday approached the high court seeking anticipatory bail apprehending arrest in the case. They were produced in Sohna court, which sent them to police remand for two days. At Bombay High Court, Ryan and his parents - Augustine Pinto (73), the group's founding chairman, and Grace Pinto (62), the managing director - sought transit anticipatory bail. "Despite taking all necessary steps for security and well-being of the students as required by law and prudence, if such an unfortunate incident occurs, the institution can not be held culpable as it is itself a victim of unfortunate circumstances", they said.

The Pinto family has also highlighted the "security" measures in force in all their schools and contended that they can not be held responsible for the horrific incident.

The school Principal is suspended but what about the Trustees or Chairperson? Raghav also alleged he was beaten up by police.

New Delhi, September 12: in a shocking truth revealed, 2 students from Gurugram's Ryan International school claimed to witness the accused conductor masturbating inside the toilet, where seven years old students Pradyuman Thakur was found dead with throats and ears slit.

According to a story carried by The Quint, Prayuman's father was told by the parents of some of his son's classmates that the school authorities asked them to clean the bloodstains on his water bottle.

Visiting the school were the Gurugram Commissioner and DCP, while Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar called up the victim's family (the family hails from Bihar) as well as Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
