All three are trustees of St Xaviers Education Trust that manages Ryan International schools in the country.

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday adjourned the transit anticipatory bail application hearing of founding chairman and managing director of Ryan International Group of Institutions Augustine Pinto and wife Grace Pinto respectively to Thursday.

With the CEO Ryan Pinto quizzed inside the school, the Nationalist Congress Party workers protested outside the Ryan International School's Thakur Complex campus demanding that the teaching and non-teaching staff employed in the school should go through a rigorous background check, with police verification.

The crime took place within 10 minutes after Pradyuman was dropped at the school by his father.

Additional Public Prosecutor Aruna Pai Kamath opposed the plea and sought time to file a detailed reply.

Pradhan further said the child's death caused deep pain and grief not only to his parents and family but also to trustees, management, staffers, and students of the school.

Pradyuman's father has moved the Supreme Court for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the case.

The report further said that there were no separate toilets for conductors and drivers and the wall behind the school remained unfinished, which easily allowed anyone to enter the school premises without permission. It also sent the Human Resources head of the group, Jeyus Thomas, to judicial custody till September 18.

Vinay Kumar Rathod, deputy commissioner of police, zone 12 said that the Mumbai police force was assisting the Haryana police officers in keeping the law and order situation under control near the Ryan schools. They approached the Samta Nagar police, who then made arrangements at the school to prevent any untoward situation. "We provided adequate number of policemen to accompany them to school".

Class 2 student Praduman Thakur was found with his throat slit in a school washroom on Friday last. The police have arrested two other persons attached to the school management under various charges of the Juvenile Justice Act.
