Accused sent to judicial custody till Sept 18
The main accused in the Pradyuman Thakur murder case, Ashok Kumar, has been sent to judicial custody. He will be produced in a Gurugram special court on September 18. Earlier, Kumar was in police remand for three days for allegedly murdering the Class II student of Ryan International School's Bhondsi branch.
"The accused will be put in a separate cell for a few days so that no other inmates can harm him. Also, some extra police personnel will be deployed to keep a vigil on him," Jail Superintendent, Ratan Singh said.
On Tuesday, two senior officials of the Ryan International School, who were arrested in connection with the murder of the seven-year-old Pradyuman in the school premises, were produced in Sohna court and remanded to police custody.
Pradyuman was found dead with his throat slit in the washroom of Ryan International School in Bhondsi area on Sohna Road on September 8. His father, however, knocked the door of the Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe into the matter on Monday.
Subhash Garg, father of another school student, said he was present at the reception on the school campus when the crime took place. He also rushed along with others to the incident spot after hearing the screams of the staff and students.
"We found the boy in a pool of blood and Ashok himself carried the child to a vehicle. Blood was spread in the washroom and nearby corridor. Blood stains were also available on the wall of the toilet and the corridor. After the incident, some guards were deployed near the corridor. Later, the school sweeper cleaned the corridor area, Garg, said.
"The bus conductor had also washed his blood-stained clothes and went somewhere and after some time a police team reached the school," he said.
Meanwhile, an investigation officer in the case said, police were satisfied with the questioning of accused bus-conductor and his police remand has ended. Police are interrogating two persons to determine the sequence of event that led to the murder of the boy in school’s washroom.
"Ashok has already confessed to his crime that he had murdered the boy because he raised an alarm. He stabbed the child twice and washed the knife in the washroom and threw the same at the site of the crime," he said.
Meanwhile, former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi met the victim’s family on Tuesday. He said he had talked to the State Government for speedy justice into the matter. "It was a clear case of negligence by the school administration. The State Government should take strict actions against such type of irresponsible schools. The victim’s family reached the top court for justice and the State Government should take a matter on a serious note and put the accused persons behind the bar," Manjhi, said.
