CBSE issues showcause notice to Ryan school over Pradhuman's murder

A day after Haryana government took over Gurugram's Ryan International, the CBSE on Saturday served a show cause notice to the embattled school in connection with the murder of a 7-year-old student on its premises.

In response to a Supreme Court query, after the death of the seven-year-old boy at Ryan worldwide school in Delhi, the board sent a circular titled "safety of children" to its affiliated schools.

The committee had found the school guilty of gross negligence. In its notification on Tuesday, the CBSE said the onus of keeping students safe within schools would "solely lie upon the school authorities". The fire safety license of the school is expired since May and most of the CCTV cameras installed in the school building are not functioning the report says. The committee submitted its report to the CBSE on Friday.

Separate panels are directed to be formed to deal with all sorts of internal complaints while a committee has to be made in all the CBSE affiliated schools address any sexual harassment of the student within the school campus. The onus for safety and security of children in school campus shall exclusively lie upon the school authorities. Attention must be paid on stringent checks and verification of hired teaching and non-teaching staff in the school. A detailed check of non-teaching staff has been also demanded.
