New Delhi [India], October 30 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday asked petitioner and lawyer Suchitra Saxena to compile the guidelines related to security of children in schools and present it before the court.

There are several guidelines on this issue which have been prepared by government bodies and institutions. The court will take all such guidelines into account while preparing a single set of guidelines to be issued to all the schools across India.

Following the brutal murder of a seven-year-old child in Ryan International School, a plea was earlier filed by two women lawyers in the apex court seeking implementation of existing guidelines to ensure safety and well-being of children in schools across the country.

Hearing the plea on September 15, a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and A.M. Khanwilkar issued notices and sought response within three weeks from the Union Human Resources Ministry and all the state governments and union territories. (ANI)
