Save on your hotel -

If you thought public outrage and media frenzy--after the murder of seven-year-old Pradhyumn ​Thakur in Ryan International School's Bhondsi branch--would make Gurugram police take swift action to nab the real culprits, then think again.

Gurugram police, already battling charges of going slow in the case allegedly to protect the real culprits, seems in no hurry to interrogate the trustees of Ryan School. Pinto family has been summoned by Gurugram police for interrogation on September 26.

This despite the fact that Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday refused to stay arrests of Ryan School trustees in this case. Earlier, the Bombay High had rejected anticipatory bail application of Pinto family.

But, Gurugram police has decided to wait until September 26 to interrogate the high-profile Ryan School trustees. The school owners - founder Augustine Francis Pinto, MD Grace Pinto and CEO Ryan Pinto -- are based in Mumbai. Police teams could have easily gone to Mumbai to interrogate the Pinto family so as to pitch together all the evidence that could still be retrieved.

Delay in investigation and interrogation would, at best, help the accused and this also increases the chances of tampering with the evidence. At a time when police teams should actually be pouncing on the head to suspects to get to the bottom of the real truth, the excaxtly opposite seems to be happening on the ground.

Denial of anticipatory bails from two courts meant the noose was actually tightening on Pinto family. But Gurugram police has decided to wait till Tuesday to start with the interrogation of Pinto family.

Earlier, Ryan Pinto was served a notice by Gurugram police which sought answers from him about security lapses in the school and names of those responsible for those lapses. Ryan Pinto's statements become vital as the school faces a criminal case for negligence.
