Now Juvenile Student Accused In Gruesome Ryan International School Murder Retracts Confession

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 investigating authorities had earlier said the boy had confessed to killing Pradhuman Thakur inside one of the school's bathrooms to postpone an upcoming exam and parent-teacher meeting. The cops also admitted that they didn't watch the closed circuit television (CCTV) footage carefully.

The Gurugram police SIT had investigated the murder initially, and had arrested a school conductor, Ashok Kumar, for murdering the child. The team members, however, remained silent on exactly how they made this grave error. The agency also indicated that the probe might be compromised and the knife- thought to be the murder weapon- was planted on Ashok Kumar. CNN-News18 had quoted CBI sources as saying that the police may have also tried to destroy the evidence.

The CBI is concerned over the reasons as to why the SIT either missed or misinterpreted evidence, which allowed the "accused" Class XI studen to walk scot-free under the garb of a key witness. This is a conspiracy hatched by the school administration and the police.

"The CBI officials/ investigating officer has openly flouted the orders of the board, whereby this board had specifically directed the CBI officials to conduct enquiry of the juvenile delinquent between 10 am to 6 pm during the course of enquiry for three days.The above observations of this board has been clearly been violated by the CBI", he pointed out.

The Juvenile Justice Board had directed CBI to allow child welfare committee (CWC) to probe the social activities of the murder suspect and profile his behaviour, likings and followings on the social front. The next date of hearing is on November 22. It said that the 16-year-old accused told the agency that he had known Pradyuman from the piano class they attended together in the school.
