As the three-member committee constituted by the deputy commissioner and the commissioner of police started its investigation on the murder of the 8-year-old child at Ryan International, Bhondsi, the loopholes in the school's security system began to surface.
The committee has one official each from the district education, Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan and block education.
One of the biggest concerns of the victim's father is the presence of an adult in the children’s washroom.
“How could a conductor enter the washroom meant only for kids? And how did he carry a knife inside? It looks like an incident which was planned and had a history to it,” said Barun Chandra Thakur.
That there are no separate toilets for drivers and conductors has been validated by the committee, which found that the toilets were indeed shared.
Speaking about the issue, Haryana education minister Ram Bilas Sharma said, “The security in the school is unsatisfactory. The CCTV footage is not precise and there is no security in toilet facilities that are shared by adults and kids.”
