He is also alleged to have told the CBI that he committed the murder as he had exam phobia and wanted the same postponed.

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.

On Monday, the accused told CBI officials and a legal-cum-probation officer appointed by the Juvenile Justice Board that the investigators had forced him to confess, according to Hindustan Times.

The SIT constituted by the Haryana Police to investigate the case had earlier arrested the school bus conductor Ashok Kumar along with murder weapon.


The sensational Pradyuman Thakur murder case is turning out to be more complex than it initially appeared as the murder accused class XI student has reportedly retracted his earlier confession to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The Gurugram police team had considered the boy a key witness, not the accused. My husband was tortured by the police to extract the confession. The CBI officially refused to confirm their meetings.Sources said the SIT officials were questioned about how they had missed several obvious clues.

Meanwhile, the father of the murder culprit denied allegations on his son and claimed that his son was thrashed and tortured by CBI officials to accept the crime.

The teen has been sent to an observation home in Faridabad for the next two weeks. The investigation agency has however not yet confirmed about the interrogation. "He is completely innocent", the accused's father had said.

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. The 7-year-old's body that was found in a pool of blood with a slit throat, led to an immediate array of investigations.
