Haryana [India], Sept 22 (ANI): Sushil Tekriwal, the lawyer representing victim's family in the Ryan International School murder case, said on Friday that he will approach the Supreme Court on Monday if the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) doesn't start the probe within today or two.

Speaking to ANI on the same, he said," If CBI does not start probe in the murder case within today or tomorrow, will go to SC on Monday."

Earlier, on Tuesday, the state government had written to the Centre seeking that a CBI inquiry be ordered into the murder case. Haryana Additional Chief Secretary (Home) SS Prasad had informed that the letter had been received by the Centre.

On September 8, seven-year-old Pradyuman was found dead inside the toilet of the Ryan International School, Gurugram, with his throat slit.

Following the incident, school's bus conductor was convicted of the crime, but the case took a complicated turn after family of the accused claimed that he was being wrongly framed and that the school authorities were trying to mislead.

Various campuses of the school were closed for a few days, following the furore that erupted after parents took to streets in a bid to protest against the lack of security for children inside the school premises.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has declined the hearing of anticipatory bail application of Ryan Pinto, Grace Pinto and Francis Pinto - owners of the Ryan International Group.

Meanwhile, the school, which opened on Monday -- 10 days after the murder of Pradyuman - has been shut down again for a week. (ANI)
