The school owners -- founder Augustine Francis Pinto, MD Grace Pinto and CEO Ryan Pinto -- are based in Mumbai and had earlier approached the Bombay High Court seeking pre-arrest bail till they could move the court concerned in Haryana. However, the Bombay High Court had on Thursday rejected their bail plea.
"An anticipatory bail plea was filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court registry today," their counsel Arshdeep Singh Cheema said.
Meanwhile, the northern zone head of Ryan International Group, Francis Thomas, who was arrested by the Haryana Police in the case, today moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking regular bail.
Thomas along with the school's HR Head, Jeyus Thomas, were arrested by Gurugram police on Sunday night. The boy was found dead with his throat slit inside a toilet of the school on September 8. Ashok Kumar, one of the school's bus conductors, was arrested in connection with the crime.
