2-day ju­di­cial re­mand for Ryan re­gional head

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - Gayas.Eapen@ times­group.com

Gur­gaon: Ryan group’s re­gional head Fran­cis Thomas, ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of Prad­hyumn Thakur, was pro­duced in a Sohna court on Satur­day af­ter the end of the three-day ex­tended po­lice re­mand. The court re­fused to en­ter­tain the bail ap­pli­ca­tion of Fran­cis, filed by his wife, and sent him to ju­di­cial cus­tody for two days.

The court, how­ever, granted bail to 10 out of 11 peo­ple who were ar­rested by po­lice on charges of ri­ot­ing, van­dal­ism and set­ting on fire a liquor vend near Ryan In­ter­na­tional School, Bhondsi, dur­ing a protest last Sun­day in the wake of Prad­hyumn’s mur­der.

Fran­cis, along with Jayesh Thomas, the HR head of Ryan In­ter­na­tional School, Bhondsi, and bus con­duc­tor Ashok Ku­mar, the prime ac­cused in the mur­der case, will now be pro­duced on Mon­day in a spe­cial court in Gur­gaon that has been set up for fast-track trial in the case. Jayesh and Ashok are cur­rently in ju­di­cial cus­tody.

While Ashok was ar­rested for al­legedly killing Prad­hyumn on Septem­ber 8, Fran­cis and Jayesh were held last week for se­cu­rity lapses in the school and booked un­der sec­tions 75 of the Ju­ve­nile Jus­tice Act and 34 (joint li­a­bil­ity) of IPC.
