I dropped my son to school at 7:55 am this morning. At 8:10 am, I got a call from the school saying, ‘please come to the hospital, your son has been injured.’
Varun Chandra Thakur, Victim’s Father

By the time Thakur reached the hospital, his seven-year-old son was declared brought dead. About 15 minutes after he dropped his son at Ryan International School in Gurugram, the boy was found in a pool of blood inside the school bathroom.

According to Thakur, his son’s throat was slit across twice. He has questioned the police on why has no action has been taken against the school after his son was killed there.

The victim was a Class 2 student at Ryan International school, while his sister was studying in Class 5. According to his father, he was a happy child and did not complain about any fights in school or otherwise.

He loved to ride his cycle; last evening, he was happily cycling. He didn’t complain of any sort of problem in the school. 

Angry Parents Vandalise School

Scared and angry parents reached the school premises to take their children back home on Friday. Agitated, they vandalised school property and shattered glass cases kept in the school.

The parents have also alleged that the CCTV cameras of the school had not been functioning, an issue which had been brought up in past parent-teacher conferences. 

However, police debunked that allegation when they clarified that the camera’s are working. But, they have also claimed that there were no CCTV cameras outside the washroom where the child was found.

A group of people reached the Gurugram police commissioner’s office and are staging a protest after the child’s death, asking for authorities to take strict action.
