Court takes cognisance of chargesheet against boy
A Gurugram court on Monday took cognisance of the CBI chargesheet filed against a 16-year-old student in the case of murder of a seven-year-old boy at a private school at Bhondsi in Gurugram. The CBI supplied copies of the chargesheet to the accused after the court passed a direction.
The arguments on the chargesheet will take place on February 28. The accused was produced before the special children court on Monday and his custody was extended until February 28. In their chargesheet, the CBI had charged 16-year-old student in connection with the killing of his junior schoolmate.
Additional Sessions Judge Jasbir Singh Kundu also ordered the CBI to submit witness statements by February 17.
The court sources said during the proceedings the court held that there was enough evidence against the accused in the chargesheet. In the final report, the probe agency has alleged that the boy had murdered the student on September 8 last year to postpone exams and cancel a parent-teacher meeting.
While the chargesheet was filed after a detailed analysis of the CCTV camera footage from the school, statements of the school management officials, forensic and technical reports, records of Bholu’s email, hard disk and mobile phone usage were used as evidence. His behaviour analysis has also been used as grounds while filing the chargesheet.
“The CBI supplied copies of the charge sheet to the accused after the court passed a direction. The further proceeding into the matter has been scheduled for February 28. Besides, the arguments on the appeal of the accused against the Juvenile Justice Board's order to try him as an adult the hearing on the matter will take place on February 17,” Sushil Tekriwal lawyer of the complainant, said.
The court further said, “A case of committing of murder of Prince on September 8, 2017, is made out against Bholu, this court may be pleased to take cognisance for the commission of offences punishable under 302 (murder) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Bholu accordingly as per law,” it said.
Earlier, the court had barred the media from using the name of the 16-year-old accused in the case and asked it to use fictitious names instead. While the seven-year-old victim was named “Prince” by the court, the juvenile accused was named “Bholu” and the private school in Bhondsi was referred to as “Vidyalaya”.
