New Delhi, Nov 11: Questions are being raised on credibility of the Gurugram Police after the new turn in the Pradyuman murder case. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has now reportedly said that the Class XI student of Ryan International School who has been taken into custody was in the list of suspects since the first week of investigation. Reports say that the CBI had raided the Class XI student’s house a month ago and had recovered some documents that had indicated his role in Pradyuman’s murder.
Meanwhile, the CBI is trying to ascertain whether another Ryan International student helped the Class XI boy in murdering Pradyuman Thakur on September 8. The investigative agency is trying to probe the case from a different angle and trying to find out whether another student helped the accused boy in allegedly murdering Pradyuman or in destroying evidence.
Seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur was found murdered in his school’s toilet, 15 minutes after being dropped to the school by his father, Varun Thakur. The Gurugram police had arrested a bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, saying that he had murdered the boy as he resisted sexual assault. Pradyuman’s parents, however, were not satisfied with this theory and had demanded a CBI probe into the matter.
The case took a complete turn when the CBI on Monday detained a 16-year-old Ryan student for allegedly murdering Pradyuman. The agency claimed that the boy murdered Pradyuman to defer examination as well as parents teacher meeting.
