The whole country was jolted when a class 2 student, Pradyuman Thakur of Ryan International School, Gurugram, was found murdered inside the school premises with his throat slit lying in a pool of blood inside the washroom with the murder weapon beside him.
If you have been following the case, you would be well aware that the conductor was the prime suspect in the case and had even confessed to the murder saying that he murdered the child because he refused his sexual advances.
However, a shocking revelation in the murder case has come forward where a class 11 student of the same school has been arrested for killing the child and booked under section 302 of the IPC. As per the CBI investigation, they have not found the involvement of the conductor in the case. Harpal Singh, the gardener told the police that a class 11 student alerted him that something had happened to the boy in the washroom after which he informed the administrator, Anju.
As reported by News 18, a revaluation of the case has revealed that the class 11 student allegedly committed the crime because he wanted to cancel the examination and postpone the parents-teachers meeting.
The boy’s father gave a statement regarding the arrest of his son claiming his innocence.

The CCTV analysis has also revealed that the boy was the prime suspect in the case. Police interrogated the whole class 11 batch but could not zero in on the boy earlier because of hazy footage. He will be produced in Gurgaon Juveline Justice Board at 2 pm.
Sushil Tekriwal, lawyer to Pradyuman’s father talked to News 18 and said that they will appeal for a death sentence for the accused. He has also accused the school of falsely framing evidence. Although, the motive behind the murder is not clear, they believe that some senior teachers could also be involved in evidence tampering.
The bus conductor’s family who always maintained that the conductor Ashok, was innocent said that they demanded a fair trial.
“Though this comes as a relief we are still not happy. We will be happy the day the truth comes out and all those who are guilty are be punished. Ashok did not do it. We will be happy the day he is acquitted of all charged. We demand a fair trial.”
We hope that justice is served soon to the distressed parents of the seven-year-old who suffered the brutal fate and met his demise when he had not even enjoyed his childhood.
