Congress terms CBI probe in Ryan murder case as 'late decision'

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

A day after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar ordered the (CBI)-led investigation in Ryan International School case, the party cornered the state for taking the decision so late.

Speaking to ANI, leader Pradeep Tamta said that the of seven-year-old boy in the Gurugram based school indicates failure of state

"I think this is state government's failure. The state should have taken this case into notice a long before. The state government's negligence can be clearly seen in this matter. Strict action should be taken against many people in this case," Tamta said.

leader Dipender Hooda said that it was unfortunate that the government took so long to order a probe.

"I think the sternest action is also less in this case. We welcome this probe but not only the bus conductor but all those who were responsible for the negligence of student's safety should also be punished. School management should be questioned. It is unfortunate that the government took so long to order probe," he told ANI.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday condemned the gruesome of a seven-year-old boy at the Ryan International School and promised for CBI-led investigation in the case.

Khattar after meeting the father and mother of the deceased told media, "I strongly condemned the murder of seven-year-old at Ryan International School. I inform you that now this case will be handed over to the CBI for investigation. However, the Government will continue its investigation till the case is handed over to CBI."

Khattar further asserted that his Government will monitor the school management closely for three months.

Pradyuman Thakur was found dead inside the toilet of the Ryan International school, with his throat slit on September 8.

The child was allegedly killed by a bus conductor, Ashok Kumar.
