Gurugram, September 12

The seven-year-old boy, found murdered in his school, was not sexually assaulted and he died of excessive bleeding, the doctor who conducted the post-mortem said today.

Dr Deepak Mathur said there were two cuts on the boy’s body and a nerve was slashed, due to which he could not cry out for help when he was attacked.

A fact-finding three-member committee, constituted by the Gurugram district administration, has submitted its report to District Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh. Meanwhile, two women lawyers today moved the Supreme Court, demanding “non-negotiable” child safety guidelines to protect schoolgoing children from sexual abuse and murder across the country.

Petitioners Abha R Sharma and Sangeeta Bharti demanded strict implementation of the existing guidelines on safety of schoolchildren. A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra agreed to hear the plea on September 15.  

It said it had already issued a notice on a similar petition filed by the slain child’s father.

The petitioners suggested additional guidelines to ensure that the responsibility was fixed on schools with regard to safety of children from the moment they boarded the school bus. — TNS & Agencies
