The applications were filed with regards to the murder of Pradyumn Thakur, a Class II student of Ryan International School, Gurugram who was found with his throat slit in the school bathroom.
Justice AS Gadkari, in a single judge bench accepted the prayer and allowed the continuation of the interim relief till 5 pm on September 15, which was to earlier expire on September 14.
However, the judge stated that the said prayer will only be accepted subject to the condition that the applicants shall deposit their respective passports with the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai or any Officer authorised/nominated by the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai on or before 9 pm on September 14.
It was further stated that failure in depositing passports would lead to the interim relief being vacated without further reference to the Court.
The father of Pradyumn has already filed a petition in the Supreme Court to seek guidelines for ensuring the safety of students in schools and to fix liability on schools in the event of any violation of such guidelines.
