Pradyuman Murder Case: Gurugram Police 'planted' knife on bus conductor, says CBI

Pradyuman Murder Case: Gurugram Police 'planted' knife on bus conductor, says CBI

According to reports, the CBI had now stated that Ashok Kumar - the bus conductor suspected earlier, was also in the washroom at that moment, however, the CCTV footage showed that he was unaware of the crime.

The Class XI student who was accused in the murder case of Class 2 student Pradyuman Thakur has taken back his confession which he reportedly made before the investigators, sources said.

The SIT constituted by the Haryana Police to investigate the case had earlier arrested the school bus conductor Ashok Kumar along with murder weapon. CBI took over the investigation of the case on September 22, after Pradyuman's father had demanded a fully fledged investigation dissatisfied by the police's probe.

"Our investigations have ruled out Kumar's involvement in the murder; we are considering not opposing his bail application", a senior agency official said. The Gurugram police team had considered the boy a key witness, not the accused.

The crisis, he concluded, meant Zimbabwe was struggling with "cash shortages and rising commodity prices". Chiwenga said the military derives its mandate to intervene from the Constitution of Zimbabwe.

The investigating authorities had earlier said the boy had confessed to killing Pradhuman Thakur inside one of the school's bathrooms to postpone an upcoming exam and parent-teacher meeting. Since the CBI identified the Class 11 student as an accused last week, it has been trying to unravel how he managed to fool the Gurgaon police.Sources claimed the four SIT members the CBI had called for questioning on Monday were an ACP, an inspector, a sub-inspector and an official of lower rank.

The child in conflict with law will now be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board, where the court is expected to decide whether he is to be treated as a major or a minor as per the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015. "We're not alleging anything as yet, but we're definitely curious about how investigating officials missed or misinterpreted these", the officer added.

The development comes few days after the father of the juvenile accused said that his son was innocent and that he was tortured and brutally thrashed by the investigators.

Pradyuman was found inside the toilet of the school with his throat slit on September 8.
