Locals who had joined the agitation set ablaze a liquor shop close to the school, ANI reported. The liquor shop, situated just 50 metres from the school, was set ablaze and some of the demonstrators threw liquor bottles inside the school premises to vent their ire against the school management, the police said.

Meanwhile, Gurugram Police Commissioner has suspended the SHO Sadar Police Station with immediate effect after negligence in maintaining law and order on Sunday which led to the arson and rioting.

The Class 2 student, Pradyuman Thakur, was found with his throat slit in the school toilet on Friday morning. The school bus conductor was arrested later that day for allegedly trying to sexually assault the boy before attacking him.

The Police has decided to file the chargesheet within seven days and fasttrack the case. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has formed a two-member fact finding committee to probe the incident and sought a report from the school within two days.
