Days after seven-year-old Pradyuman was found murder on the washroom floor of Ryan International School, major security lapses revealed by an investigation were reinforced.

On Friday, the class 2 student was allegedly murdered by his school's bus conductor Ashok, who slit his throat with a knife after failing to sexually assault him inside the toilet of the educational institute.

According to reports, Pradyuman's classroom was close to one of the school exits where school buses were parked.

As soon as his father dropped him off at school, Pradyuman ran to his classroom where he dumped his bag before running off to the washroom to get to the morning assembly on time. Soon afterwards, he was found dead on the washroom floor soaked in blood.

The washroom floor and walls still have Pradyuman's blood stains on them.

A three-member team tasked with finding security lapses in the school have found numerous negligence.

For one, that has been resurfacing ever since day one, there was no separate washroom for the bus drivers and conductors which means they were using the same toilets as the children. There was also no police verification or proper paperwork of school's hired staff.

The CCTV cameras were installed at wrong places while many of them were not even working. On top of that, one of the walls behind the school was unfinished, meaning anyone could climb into the school.

The fire extinguishers were also past their usable date and numerous glasses were broken in the school.

Two senior officials of the School have been arrested in connection with the murder while principal and teachers have been questioned by the police.

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard the Ryan murder case seeking CBI investigation, and issued a notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Central Government to look into the safety of children in schools across the country.
