New Delhi: Ryan International School moves the Supreme Court seeking a transfer of the boy's murder case outside the local court at Sohna, Haryana. The school has said that a fair trail is not possible in Haryana.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a notice to the Centre and the Haryana police on a plea by the father of the Ryan student seeking a CBI probe into the murder as well as framing of guidelines to ensure safety of children.

The father, Barun Chandra Thakur, has sought laying down of guidelines by which "liability, responsibility and accountability of the management of the school" across the country can be fixed in matters relating to safety and security of children at educational institutions.

Meanwhile, DNA samples of the accused bus-conductor Ashok Kumar have been sent to the Karnal Lab for testing.

Union ministers Maneka Gandhi and Prakash Javadekar will hold a high-level meeting today to develop a protocol for educational institutions to ensure safety of students following incidents of child sexual abuse in schools, a government official said.

The conference comes in the backdrop of the murder of Class II student Pradyuman Thakur inside Ryan International School in Gurugram for allegedly resisting sexual assault.
