Ryan Murder: Renuka Shahane's FB post says she is 'sickened' that kids consider violence cool
The actor takes a dig at rich parents, the management of the school and the Gurugram police who did such a shoddy job of investigating the murder that shook the nation
While the Ryan International School murder left everyone shocked, activist and actor Renuka Shahane of Hum Aapke Hai Kaun fame penned a chilling letter on Facebook reminding us "how violence is considered cool these days and in the run for grades we’ve left humanity far behind."
The cold-blooded murder case of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur took a new dimension on Wednesday after the CBI trashed the probe by the Gurugram police and gave a clean chit to the bus conductor arrested on the charges of murder and sexual assault. Instead, the investigating agency arrested an 11th grader who allegedly killed the seven-year-old to postpone a parent-teacher meeting.

I’m sure all of you must have heard who the real culprit is in the Pradyuman murder case. The CBI has taken into custody an 11th grader who allegedly thought nothing of slitting the throat of an innocent 7-year-old school boy just so that the school will have to declare a holiday, exams won’t be held and PTM won’t follow soon after. It sickens me how violence is considered cool these days and in the run for grades we’ve left humanity far behind. The rich parents, the management of the school and the Gurugram police who did such a shoddy job, didn’t mind making a scapegoat of an innocent man whose only crime was his poverty. It’s time “International Schools” wake up and start actually educating their pupils. And somewhere I hope somebody is teaching the rich that not everything can be bought with money; definitely not good values and definitely not a good education. There are no shortcuts in life and no expressway has milestones! RIP Pradyuman!
Pradyuman was found inside the toilet of the school with his throat slit on September 8.
