New Delhi:

The Gurugram Police on Friday summoned the owners of Ryan International School for interrogation on 26th September in connection with the murder of a seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur on the school campus on September 8. The police have alleged that the Pinto family is not cooperating with the investigation.

According to sources close to the matter, the Pintos have gone into hiding. The police are likely to raid all possible hideouts in and around Delhi to arrest them for interrogation in the Ryan International school murder case.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday had denied anticipatory bail to the founding chairman of Ryan International Group of Institutions Augustine Pinto, the groups managing director Grace Pinto and their son Ryan Pinto. The case has been adjourned for Monday. 

On September 8, Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student was found dead inside a toilet of Ryan International School with his throat slit after. A school bus conductor Ashok Kumar believed to be present in the toilet when the boy entered and caught in security footage leaving it, has been arrested.
