The accused official in connection with the murder of a seven-year-old student of the Ryan International School today moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of the case to Delhi's Saket court, alleging the bar has restrained lawyers from representing the accused in the sensational case.
Senior advocate K.T.S. Tusli will be representing the Ryan International School, Gurugram in the Supreme Court in connection with the case.
A bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and A.M. Khanwilkar considered Tulsi's submission that "the fundamental right of a person to be represented by a lawyer of his choice was getting infringed."
The top court will now hear the matter on Monday.
Earlier on Tuesday, the doctor, who conducted the postmortem of the seven-year-old student said that there were no signs of sexual assault on his body
He informed that almost the entire neck of the student was slit, stating that he might have died in the school itself considering the kind of injuries.
The doctor further apprised that all samples have been taken from the crime scene.
The school's bus conductor was nabbed on Friday after the body of seven-year-old student was found inside the toilet of the high-profile school, with his throat slit, following which the school's principal was suspended.
A Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted to look into the murder case of the seven-year-old Gurugram student, pointed out serious security lapses in the school.
The SIT averred that the school did not have any separate toilet for staffs like drivers and conductors, while adding that the administration even did not get their employees identification verified.
