| | Gurugram

The Gurugram Police has conducted potency test on the main accused Ashok Kumar in the murder of Pradyuman Thakur, a student of Ryan International School here. The result of the test is awaited but police said that the reason for conducting the test was to ensure that accused did not get away using any legal or medical reason to escape punishment.

Highly-placed sources with the police department said during the remand period police have sent Ashok's undergarments and the knife allegedly used in the murder along with blood samples of the accused and the victim for forensic testing.

Ashok's sperm has also been sent for a DNA test, police also have done potency test of the accused and reports are awaited.

"The murder is being investigating from different angles. Also, police would like to produce a strong case before the court also we are piecing together sequence of the crime with the evidence so that the accused could not take any benefit of a doubt," a senior police officer, said.

The accused was confronted in the light of the evidences gathered so far. He was repeatedly asked disclose the sequence of events. During his custodial interrogation, Ashok, the accused, maintained that he committed murder, said a police officer involved in the probe.

"During the investigation, Ashok told us at the time of crime his mind was not working. Everything has occurred within a second and he killed the boy," said the officer.

However, Ashok's parents, relatives and his fellow villagers do not believe that he has committed such a sordid crime.

Pradyuman's parents also sense something fishy in the police theory and have told police that someone else had committed the crime.

A senior police officer said, "Assistant Director of Haryana Police (Law and order), Mohammad Akil has also talked to the school gardener who also informed the school teacher about the incident. The ADGP had also visited the crime spot on Monday."

"The investigation into the horrendous killing is underway and the investigation team is gathering all possible evidence and facts to prove their case before the court. During the remand period, there was no pressure on the accused. He has confessed his crime before the court as well," Ravinder Kumar, spokesperson of Gurugram police, said.
