Father of Pradhyumn Thakur, who was found brutally murdered inside the premises of Ryan International School Gurgaon, today said that he would approach the government and request it to declare September 8 as ‘Students’ Safety Day’.

Pradhyumn’s murder at a reputed school on September 8 sent shockwaves across the nation with parents flagging concerns over safety of their children.
