CBI to register FIR in Ryan school murder case
New Delhi:The CBI on Friday said it will file a case in the murder of a Class 2 Ryan International school student as it has received the notification from the government.
A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official told IANS that the agency has received the notification from the government in the Ryan student's murder case.
"We will file a case today (Friday) itself," the official said.
The Haryana government ordered a CBI inquiry into the killing of seven-year-old Pradhuman Thakur on September 15.
Pradhuman was murdered on September 8 inside the Ryan International School in Bhondsi area on the Sohna Road in Gurugram district of Haryana. He was found dead with his throat slit inside the school's washroom within an hour after his father dropped him at school that morning.
Police alleged that school bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, 42, killed him with a knife after the boy resisted an attempt to sodomise him.
While Kumar has been arrested, his parents and two other staffers claim he was being made a scapegoat.
Police have also arrested two officials of the school and are seeking to question the trustees of Ryan Trust, which manages the school.
The case snowballed into a major national issue of safety and security of children in schools, with vociferous protests held by parents and activists outside Ryan schools in several states.
