Beyond Ryan International School murder: How safe are children in India


There is outrage at the safety of children in schools after the horrific murder of a 7-year-old boy at Ryan International School, Gurgaon. The Ryan International School was founded by Dr. AF Pinto and led by Grace Pinto – both are said to be politically well connected with the BJP and Congressional leadership.

The group run by Ryan International has more than 300 schools in 18 states and abroad. The attempted sodomy and murder of the Class II child in Gurgaon is the second major crime reported by Ryan International schools. Last year, another child (6 years) died of drowning in his water tank inside the Vasant Kunj campus in Delhi.
