With a new turn in the Ryan International School’s student’s murder case of Pradyuman, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is unlikely to cancel the affiliation as the school administrator assured the board about the corrective measures it had taken to ensure the safety of its students on its premises.
“CBSE had issued a show cause to the school, pointing out several deficiencies. We have submitted a report to the CBSE on November 6 and pointed out that as all the deficiencies highlighted by them have been corrected, the affiliation of the school should not be cancelled,” said Vinay Pratap Singh, Gurugram Deputy Commissioner.
Singh, DC of Gurugram, in September, took charge as the administrator after it was declared that the Haryana government would take over the charge from the school management until the situation normalizes for three months.
A show cause notice was issued to the school by the CBSE on September 17 asking the reason as to why the school’s affiliation should not be nulled after the death of a class 2 student in their premises.
As per the report of the CBSE probe team, it pointed out that among other flaws in the security system, there was no attendant assigned for the toilet where the body was found dead, the CCTV cameras were not functioning properly and the boundary walls did not prevent any unlawful entry of an outsider into the school premises as the walls were not high enough.
According to the sources, no action was taken by the CBSE other than issuing a show case notice in September.
The safety report of the school was received by the CBSE, confirmed a CBSE spokesperson.
As per the sources, though the CBSE’s report ruled out scrapping recognition of the school but it is also competent to take an independent action against it.
