The wife of bus conductor Ashok Kumar, the driver held by the Haryana police for the murder of 7-year-old Pradyuman at the Ryan International School demanded justice and proper investigation, while accusing the school administration of hatching a conspiracy against her husband.
As per Hindustan Times report, the teenager has even accused the CBI investigators of torturing and abusing him.
While the police team had apprehended Ashok Kumar, who was working as a conductor in the school bus for the murder, the CBI investigation gave him a clean chit and detained the juvenile who studies in the same school.
The agency is trying to investigate the case from a different angle as they are probing whether another student helped the accused boy in allegedly murdering Pradyuman or in destroying evidence, reported the TOI.
In another twist to the Ryan International School murder case, the juvenile who had earlier confessed to the killing of Class 2 student Pradhyumn Thakur has retracted from his confession.
