Pradyuman murder: CBI seeks juvenile's remand to recreate crime sceneLast updated on Nov 09, 2017, 11:19 am
After the arrest of a Class XI student for the murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur, the CBI sought his remand so it could reconstruct the crime scene.
Earlier, the Juvenile Justice Board had refused its request for six-day custody and granted permission for three.
The arrest of the 16-year-old was a shocking development as all fingers till now had pointed to a bus conductor.
The murder that shook the country
On September 8, Pradyuman was found dead with his throat slashed in a toilet at Ryan International School, Gurugram.
According to the post mortem report, the cause of death was "shock and haemorrhage"
An external injury was caused due to a sharp single-edged weapon which led to his death.
The incident caused outrage as angry parents all over demanded more accountability from schools.
The police and the CBI had drastically different findings
Within 24 hours, police had arrested Ashok Kumar, a school bus conductor. They claimed Kumar had confessed.
But Kumar insisted he was framed; he was allegedly made to sign on blank paper.
For now, the juvenile will stay at a correctional home
The agency now wants to take him to the crime spot to "ascertain the details and identify the shop from where the murder weapon was procured by him".
It has been permitted to question him between 10am-6pm while he stays in a correctional home.
