MUMBAI: Ryan International School's CEO Ryan Pinto and his parents, who are its founders, today approached the Bombay High Court seeking anticipatory bail in connection with the murder of a seven-year-old boy in the institution's premises in Gurgaon. The bail pleas were filed following the arrest of two top officials of the Ryan International School.

"The school's founding chairman and managing director, Augustine Pinto, and his wife Grace Pinto, who is the chairperson of the school, have along with their son Ryan Pinto sought anticipatory bail in the Bombay High Court," their counsel Niteen Pradhan told PTI.

Pradhan mentioned the applications this morning before Justice Ajey Gadkari, who posted them for hearing tomorrow.
