The lawyers, in their petition have sought implementation of various guidelines on safety of school children.

The cold-blooded murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman, a class 2 student of Gurugram’s Ryan International School has sparked country-wide outrage among parents on the issue of safety of their wards.

To address the issue, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear on September 15 a plea filed by two women lawyers seeking implementation of existing guidelines to ensure safety and well-being of children in schools across the country.

Meanwhile, a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar said that it has already issued notice on a similar plea filed by the father of the child, who was brutally murdered at Gurgaon’s Ryan International School.

“We will tag it (writ petition) with the earlier one,” the bench said.
