New Delhi: The family of the seven-year-old boy murdered in the Ryan International School campus in Gurugram has demanded that the CBI must question the Pintos, the founders of the school, and that the arrested 16-year-old student of the school, now a prime suspect, should be tried as an adult.

“The CBI should grill, interrogate and arrest the Pintos’ family,” Barun Chandra Thakur, father of murdered Class 2 student Pradhuman Thakur, told IANS.

He also said that the Pintos should not be given any “leeway” just because they are “high and mighty”.

“They should not go scot free from this incident (murder). Earlier on two occasions they have been able to go scot free pertaining to the deaths of two kids in other branches of the school,” he said.

The CBI in the Punjab and Haryana Court had opposed the anticipatory bail plea of Ryan Augustine Pinto, CEO of the school. The owners of the Ryan School – Francis Augustine Pinto, Grace Pinto and Ryan Pinto – had filed the anticipatory bail petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court which granted interim bail to them till December 5, which has been challenged by Thakur in the Supreme Court.

Thakur, a resident of Madhubani in Bihar, said that it should not happen again in this case. He said CBI should not leave any stone unturned to bring out the actual culprit behind the murder. The probe should go into aspects like  negligence, lapses and deficiencies in the school premises, which have been confirmed and acknowledged by the CBSE in its fact-finding report, he said.
