CBI takes class XI student to Ryan, recreates crime scene
NEW DELHI: The CBI on Saturday took the class XI student apprehended in the September 8 murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur to Ryan International School's Gurgaon branch to recreate the sequence of events that led to the crime. The class XI student was brought from the Observation Home to Ryan at around 10:30 am by a 15-member CBI team in three cars.
The CBI questioned him about the day the murder took place, where he entered from and what time he came to the school. The Bureau also questioned him on where he had hidden the alleged murder weapon, the knife that he carried to school which has been recovered by the CBI.
The CBI tried to match the timing of the alleged sequence of events in chronological manner to give their theory of murder some weight. This development comes after the 16-year-old Ryan International School student accused of killing the class 2 student was on Thursday taken by a CBI team to some places in Sohna, where they also visited a knife shop, to ascertain the origin of the knife allegedly used in the murder.
The CBI team also made enquiries at a utensils store at Sohna mandi from where the murder weapon is likely to have been bought.
Meanwhile, the father of the accused child has alleged that "the CBI tortured" his son and raided his house on September 28. He alleged that the agency took his son's clothes, laptop, phone and notebook and maintained that his son is good at studies; so there is no question of his committing the murder to get the exams postponed.
However, the investigating agency looked confident and convinced that the class XI student is, indeed, the real culprit. Earlier Haryana police had arrested the school bus conductor for the murder.
Later, the Juvenile justice board sent the 160-year-old accused to the Observation Home till November 22.
