Ryan School Case: HC Refuses To Stay Arrest Of School Trustees:- The Punjab and Haryana court have issued notice to the Haryana government on the anticipatory bail petition filed by the three trustees of Ryan International School. The case relates to murder of a seven-year old boy in its Gurgaon school.
However, the single bench of Justice Inderjit Singh did not grant a stay on arrests in the matter. The matter has been posted for hearing by the court for next Monday. “The single bench has issued notice of motion to the Haryana government seeking its response on the anticipatory bail plea,” said the counsel for the Ryan trustees.
The High Court was approached by the group’s CEO, Ryan Pinto, and his parents, founding chairman Augustine Pinto and managing director Grace Pinto, last week seeking anticipatory bail. Justice A B Chaudhari had rescued himself from hearing their petition on Tuesday.
