Pradyuman Thakur murder : 16-yr-old schoolmate held; sent in 3-day CBI remand

Agencies, New Delhi

The infamous Ryan International School murder case on Wednesday took a new turn with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) detaining a 16-year-old schoolmate of victim Pradyuman Thakur for killing him.

The 11th standard boy was later produced before a Gurugram court which sent him to three-day CBI custody. According to the CBI, the juvenile, who was not good at studies, assaulted the seven-year-old boy to create a situation in the campus, which could lead to postponement of his upcoming examination and the impending Parents-Teacher Meet.

However, the agency couldn’t give any further explanation of the motive of the murder despite persistence queries of reporters during a press conference at which it announced detention which took place last night.

Asked about the role of the school bus conductor who was arrested by the Haryana police as the first accused in the case, the CBI said as of now they were focusing only on the juvenile.

The CBI also refused to comment on the current status of Ryan International Group Chief Executive Officer Ryan Pinto and his parents — founding chairman Augustine Pinto and Managing Director Grace Pinto — who were granted interim bail by the Supreme Court on Monday.

The agency refused to comment on reports of alleged behaviorial disorder of the accused. On September 22, the CBI had registered a case in the killing of class 2nd student Pradyuman, who was found lying in a pool of blood with his throat slit in one of the school’s toilets on the morning of September 8.

His body bore cut marks at various places, while a knife was recovered from the spot, which was later confirmed as the weapon used in the crime. Haryana police had earlier arrested Ashok Kumar, a bus conductor, who was working with the school for the past eight months.
