Mumbai: The Gurgaon Police destroyed evidence and made a false arrest, revealed CBI’s investigation in the murder mystery of Ryan International School’s student Pradyuman Thakur.
In a broader view whether the evidence was destroyed on purpose or whether it was just poor policing, only further investigation will be able to reveal the truth.
Under the CBI radar, four policemen from the city police special investigation team have been brought forward and if sources are to be believed, their call records are being analysed, and also a departmental enquiry has been recommended.
And it is pretty evident if once the CBI took over the case, it will automatically probe the role of investigating officers.
On September 8, the murder mystery of Pradyuman Thakur shocked the nation, as the boy was found with his throat slit in the washroom of Ryan International School in Gurgaon. Pradyuman was rushed to the hospital but declared dead on arrival.
Initially in the case, immediately the Gurgaon Police had arrested a bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who also confessed to murdering Pradyuman when he tried to resist a sexual assault attempt.
Out of suspicion, Pradyuman’s parent’s asked for a CBI’s probe, also a petition was filed in the Supreme Court by Pradyuman’s father, which made the Haryana government hand over the case to the Central Investigating Agency, for a sorted investigation.
The CBI ruled out the sexual assault theory after no evidence of it was found.
Meanwhile, the owners of the Ryan chain of schools were put into questions, arrested and later released on bail.
Now, the latest twist in the case, is that the CBI made an arrest of a Class XI student as his connection with the murder came in limelight. As per the copy of his remand application, the boy “admitted his involvement” in murdering Pradyuman.
Thus, the CBI said Ashok “did not commit the murder and they are giving him a clean chit,” quoted by the bus conductor’s lawyer.
Whereas, the father of Class XI student has said that his son is innocent, and alleged that he is being tortured.
On which, The CBI has clearly denied the allegations.
