Pradyuman Murder: Ashok Kumar Returns Home, Wife Says ‘he Was Tortured by Police’

New Delhi, Nov 23: Ashok Kumar, the bus conductor, who was arrested on allegations of murdering 7-year-old Pradyuman Thakur at Ryan International School, Gurugram, was released on bail on Wednesday. While Ashok thanked the media after he returned home, he said he was in a lot of pain. His wife claimed that he was tortured by the police while he was in custody.

“Police beat him up, hung him upside down, tortured him and even sedated him to make him confess that he killed Pradyuman,” said Ashok’s wife while speaking to news agency ANI.

Ashok was released on bail from Gurugram’s Bhondsi jail on Wednesday evening. This came after the Gurugram District Court on Tuesday granted bail to him with a Rs 50,000 security bond. Ashok got bail days after the Central Bureau of Investigation apprehended a Class XI student of the same school alleging he murdered Pradyuman.

4-year-old Sexually Assaults Classmate, Inserts Sharpened Pencil in Her Private Parts

New Delhi, November 23: In a horrific incident, a four-and-a-half-year-old boy has been booked for raping a classmate inside the classroom and the washroom of a prominent private school in west Delhi on Friday, police said.

Narrating the incident to her mother, the girl, who is of the same age, said that the boy used his finger and a sharpened pencil to assault her sexually, Hindustan Times reported. The assault caused wounds in the child’s private parts, her mother said.

After consulting legal experts in the matter, a case of rape under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered, the deputy commissioner of police said. But given the suspect’s age, police were unsure of how to proceed with the prosecution. “The Indian Penal Code (IPC) provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions. We are examining those provisions even as we are handling the matter with utmost sensitivity,” said Dependra Pathak, Delhi Police’s chief spokesperson.

In her statement to the police, the girl’s mother said that her daughter complained of pain in her lower abdomen after returning from school on Friday. The child began crying that night and told her mother about the alleged assault. She told her mother that a boy from her class unbuttoned her pants in the classroom and used his finger to assault her.

Jodhpur/Mumbai, Nov 22 (PTI) Actor Kangana Ranaut was today discharged from the hospital after being treated for a leg injury that she suffered on the sets of her upcoming film “Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi” in Jodhpur.

Kangana, who is playing the title role of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi in the movie, suffered a ligament tear in her right ankle last night, while shooting for some action sequences in the movie.

She was brought to Goyal Hospital here at 4.00 am.

The actor interacted with the media present at the hospital and said that she was doing better.

“During this scene, I stumbled and injured my right ankle. There was nothing serious, It was just a sprain,” Kangana told reporters here.

Dr Pulkit Goyal, who treated the actor, said she has been prescribed to take some rest.

“We did an X-ray and found that there was no fracture. It was just a sprain, after which we put a cast and recommended her to rest for some time,” he said.

After being discharged, Kangana was taken back to her hotel, where she rested for the day until flying back to Mumbai in the afternoon.

The National Award-winning actor was in the city for over a week. She had also made a public appearance last week when she visited a renowned restaurant here.

According to a source close to the actor, the accident took place last night when she was performing a scene at the Mehrangarh fort, where she had to jump off from a 40- feet-high wall with her adopted child in the film, who is tied to her back on a horse.

तेजप्रतापद यहीं नहीं रुके. उन्होंने कहा, गरीब-गुरबा को जो छला है, उसके घर में घुसकर मारेंगे. मैं रुकने वाला नहीं हूं. अगर वह शादी में बुलाएगा, तो वहीं सभा कर देंगे. वह अतिथियों के सामने बेइज्‍जत होगा. तेजप्रताप अपने अंदाज में कहते रहे. उन्होंने खुद को अलग तरह का आदमी बताते हुए खुद के विषय में कहा, मैं जज्बाती हूं. लालू यादव की तरह मुंह पर बोलने वाला आदमी हूं. जो दिल में रहता है, वही जुबान पर रहता है. न किसी से मैं डरता हूं, न किसी के सामने झुकता हूं.
