CBI had zoomed in on juvenile in 6 days, searched his home

The 16-year-old accused, who allegedly killed 7-year-old Pradhuman Thakur on September 8, was arrested by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) after being on scanner of investigators for more than a month.

The 15 members of the team - including forensic experts - spent around five hours on the school premises and questioned around 40 to 50 school teachers.

"The CBI officials/ investigating officer has openly flouted the orders of the board, whereby this board had specifically directed the CBI officials to conduct enquiry of the juvenile delinquent between 10 am to 6 pm during the course of enquiry for three days.The above observations of this board has been clearly been violated by the CBI", he pointed out. The court has accepted the plea and given the date of November 16 (Thursday) for the hearing.

"The custodial interrogation of the child in conflict with law is nearly complete and he is no more required in police custody. We have made a decision to file a case against Gurgaon Police SIT officers who framed and used torture and even drugged him to confess before the media that he had committed the crime", said Ashok's father Amirchand.

"My son is being tortured". "My son is being tortured, he was hung upside down and brutally thrashed". He is completely innocent and brilliant in studies. On September 24, the agency conducted a search of his room and took away his laptop, mobile phone, school bags, clothes and other items for verification.

"In the statement, my son claimed he was the first who had informed school gardener about the crime and instead the CBI implicated him", he added. But the sources said the agency has denied all the allegations.

The murder case of the seven-year-old took a new dimension on Wednesday after the CBI arrested the class 11 student of the Ryan International School and gave a clean chit to the bus conductor, arrested on the charges of murder and sexual assault.

As per CBI's theory, the Class 11 student allegedly slit Pradhuman's throat to get the school to declare a holiday in order to defer a scheduled parent-teacher meeting (PTM) and an examination.

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.
