MUMBAI: In a temporary reprieve on Tuesday, the Bombay High Court adjourned till Wednesday the hearing of an anticipatory bail application filed by the trustees of Ryan International Schools in the case of the death of a seven-year-old student in their Gurugram branch.
The trustees – Augustine F. Pinto, his wife Grace Pinto and their son Ryan Pinto – had on Monday filed the application seeking anticipatory transit bail to move an appropriate court in Haryana.
The names, whereabouts or the eligibility of the other trustees of the St Xavier’s Educational Trust — that manages the group’s schools — was not made clear.
The Trust is registered as a Public Charitable Trust in Maharashtra in the early 1980s.
The development comes in the wake of the brutal murder of a student, Pradhuman Thakur, on September 8, in the Ryan International School in Bhondsi in Haryana’s Gurugram.
