New Delhi: Neerja Batra, suspended principal of Ryan International School (Bhondsi), where a seven-year-old student, Pradyuman Thakur was murdered, has now joined Gurgaon’s Sector- 40 branch as a teacher.

Batra was suspended for negligence in delivering her duties.

Batra was officiating as Ryan school's principal in Bhondsi branch and was also an in-charge of the school. She had been working with the Ryan school for approximately 20 years.

“How can you reinstate the principal who failed to fulfill her responsibility? What is the meaning of suspension then?,” Pradyuman's father, Varun Thakur questioned.

“How can you expect Neerja Batra to fulfill her responsibilities as a teacher. It's a risk to security and safety of students,” he added. 

On September 28, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had stayed the arrest of the Pinto family, the owners and trustees of Ryan International School in connection with murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur.

The Pinto family -- Augustine F Pinto, his wife Grace and their son Ryan had moved the High Court seeking anticipatory bail in the matter.

The court will hear the matter next on October 7.

On September 8, the body of the class II student Pradyuman Thakur was found inside the toilet of the school, with his throat slit.
