The Ryan International School, Gurgaon reopened on Monday, a week after it was shut down after the brutal murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur within the school premises.
On September 8, the boy was found with his throat slit in the washroom of the school.
A school bus driver, Ashok Kumar has been arrested in connection with the case.
“The boy’s father expressed concern that reopening of the school will erase all the evidence related to the case. This will also have direct consequences on the CBI’s investigation,” his lawyer Susheel Tekriwala told.
“Due to this, the school should remain close till the investigation are not completed,” he added.
“I did not want to come back to school after hearing of the murder, but government has promised to provide protection, so I have faith,” said, Arijit Choudhary, an eighth-standard student.
Prakhar Sharma, studying in the first standard, saying “More than myself, I fear for my younger brother; he goes to the washroom alone.”
Parents were also reluctant to leave their children alone at the school.
Some parents also suggested that strict security measures must be taken by the school authorities so that such incident is not repeated.
Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced on Friday that the investigation of the brutal killing was being handed over to the CBI.
