They were booked under section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act. Section 75 of the JJ Act deals with cruelty and crime against children under custody of someone and invites punishment of 5-10 years.

Earlier, the Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre, HRD Ministry and Haryana Government  seeking a report within three weeks.

The father of the victim, Varun Thakur, appealed the apex court demanding a parallel CBI enquiry, saying the school has severe administrative loopholes.

Varun Thakur, said: " I have full faith in the Supreme Court and have received a positive response from the Haryana Government."

Victim's lawyer sought CBI investigation into the case and added that a tribunal or authority should be constituted to hear such types of cases.

"It's been two days that my son is dead and we all miss him a lot. My only wish is that the truth should come out and justice given to my wife and me. There is something which the local police are missing and so the case should be investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). I am not happy with the police investigation, and I want a detailed investigation as there is something which is missing in the probe. There are a lot of loopholes which need to be investigated and the CBI can do in-depth investigation which will clear the motive of the murder," ANI quoted Varun Thakur as saying.

Meanwhile, Ryan International School CEO has filed anticipatory bail application in Bombay High Court. Ryan International School CEO, Ryan Pinto, went to the court as the team of Haryana Police reached Mumbai as part of the ongoing investigation. The hearing likely to take place tomorrow.

Amid raging protests Police have deployed heavy security at Gurugram's Ryan International School. All campuses of the school in the city are closed until tomorrow.
