New Delhi: Three top management executives of Ryan International Group will continue to remain out on anticipatory bail, with the Supreme Court on Monday refusing to cancel their relief in a case relating to the killing of a 7- year old student in its Gurgaon school premises.

The top court said the involvement of Ryan Pinto, Grace Pinto and Augustine Francis Pinto, the three top trustees of school, in the crime cannot be established until and unless there was some substantial evidence against them.

A bench of Justices R.K. Agrawal and Abhay M. Sapre said it does not find any good ground to interfere with the November 21 order of the Punjab and Haryana high court.

In the considered opinion of the court, the CBI is yet to come to a conclusion regarding the involvement of the Pintos’ in the crime and they have made out a case for grant of protection by way of interim bail till the charge sheet is filed, the top court said.
