Pradyuman Murder Case : CBI probes possible goofup by Gurugram police

The CBI team which was curious to find out how some major details from the case were not identified by the police who also misinterpreted several clues.

The CBI claimed that the boy had admitted to the crime.

The officers were asked on what basis the conductor was arrested.

Although no official confirmation has come till now about the retraction of the confession by the minor accused, Monday's development may bring a new twist the Pradyuman murder mystery.

The 16-year-old boy accused of murdering a schoolmate at Gurgaon's Ryan International School searched the internet for various types of poison and how to use them before he executed the crime, multiple sources associated with the probe told HT. These officers may be summoned again by the agency for second round of questioning in the case.

Earlier on November 8, the CBI said that a class XI student of Ryan International School killed seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur to postpone school examinations and parent teachers meeting.

The CBI alleged that the knife was deliberately planted on bus conductor and also the cops tried to destroy the evidence. Their call records are being analysed, and a departmental enquiry has been recommended.

The CBI had last week accused a Class XI pupil of murdering Pradyuman Thakur, found with his throat slit in a school toilet in September. Pradyuman was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.

Bus conductor Ashok Kumar was arrested by Gurugram police in connection with Pradyuman's murder. The Juvenile Justice Board had directed CBI to allow child welfare committee (CWC) to probe the social activities of the murder suspect and profile his behaviour, likings and followings on the social front. The board is yet to respond to the petition filed by the family.

The case has taken a turn after the boy allegedly said that he had visited a temple on the morning of Pradhyumm's murder - after which he reached school and then waited for a friend near the school's water cooler.

The CBI have summoned Gurugram SIT members to question them about alleged evidence tampering and cover-ups.
