The Supreme Court has said, it would frame comprehensive guidelines to ensure safety and security of school children, and ordered compilation of norms formulated by the Centre and states for its consideration.
A bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, was hearing several pleas including the one filed by the father of a seven-year-old boy who was found dead at Ryan International School in Gurugram last month.
The bench asked all stakeholders to give their suggestions for comprehensive compilation and posted the matter for further hearing on 4th December.
It asked advocate Suchita Srivastav to study the existing guidelines and consider suggestions of stakeholders, including the Centre, CBSE, state governments and other parties concerned, and file a comprehensive report.
Srivastav is one of the counsels for the two women lawyers who have filed a separate petition on the issue of safety of school children.
