SNS | New Delhi |

The Gurugram Police on Friday summoned the Pinto family—trustees of Ryan International School—to join the probe into the murder of seven-year-old Pradhuman at its Gurugram branch in Haryana.

The Pinto family — Augustine F. Pinto, his wife Grace and their son Ryan had had approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Saturday seeking anticipatory bail in the case related to the murder of the Class 2 student in the school at Bhondsi area on Sohna Road in Gurugram.

However, the court turned down their plea. The matter will now be heard on September 25.

The Pinto family’s anticipatory bail plea was earlier rejected by the Bombay High Court, citing jurisdiction issues.

The Haryana Police was investigating the crime. But Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, following a demand from the victim’s family, announced last week that the probe will be taken over by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The district administration in Gurugram has taken over the Ryan School management for three months.
