New Delhi, Nov 11: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday took the apprehended Class XI student to Ryan International School in Gurugram to reconstruct the crime scene of the murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur. The Class XI student will also be presented before the Juvenile Justice Board this afternoon for further hearing in the Pradyuman murder case.
The CBI has reportedly stated that the Gurugram Police ignored the first few seconds of the CCTV footage which “clearly made” the Class XI student a prime suspect in the murder. The first 8 seconds of the CCTV footage reportedly show the Class XI student calling Pradyuman inside the toilet of the school, where he was found dead.
The CBI has also reportedly said that the apprehended Class XI student was in the list of suspects in the murder of Pradyuman Thakur since the first week of investigation. Reports say that the CBI had raided the Class XI student’s house a month ago. on September 28, and had recovered some documents that had indicated his role in Pradyuman’s murder.
Pradyuman Thakur was found murdered in his school’s toilet, 15 minutes after being dropped to the school by his father, Varun Thakur, on September 8. 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.
