Posted September 13, 2017

The Gurgaon Police have been directed to book the owner of the school under section 75 of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act, 2015 for cruelty to a child meted out by custodian, in a charge sheet to be submitted in the court within a week.

Guidelines for school buses include, among other things, a "school bus" label with name and number of school, not exceeding 50 kmph speed, having an escort from school travel in the bus etc.

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. On Sunday the protest became violent. He told us whatever we needed to know.

There were widespread protests after the incident. While no outside person is allowed to enter the premises, the bus drivers and the conductors, who have been given identity cards, are allowed to use basic amenities like toilets inside the campus on "humanitarian grounds", they said in the petitions.

A police source told this paper that the Haryana police quizzed top officials of the group about flouting safety norms and asking them to explain the nature of their conduct when the safety of the child was in question. The school claimed that the boy studying in class 1 went missing from his classroom and was found in the water tank two hours later.

He also alleged that there have been lapses on part of the school administration. All three are trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust that manages Ryan International schools in the country.
