New Delhi:

Ashok Kumar, the Ryan School bus conductor, who was the prime accused in the murder of Pradyuman Thakur was on Wednesday released from Gurugram's  Bhondsi jail.

A Gurugram-based district court had granted him bail on Tuesday. 

Ashok was granted bail against a bond of Rs 50,000. The amount was reportedly crowd-funded from his village, Ghamroj. 

It is speculated that Ashok will file a defamation case against the police officers who ‘tried to frame’ him. 

Amichand, Ashok's father expressed happiness but claimed that his son was ill-treated by the Gurugram police. "We are poor people that's why no one was listening to us," he was quoted as saying by India Today.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the investigating agency in the case has not given a clean chit to Ashok. Nevertheless, the CBI has not found any determining evidence against him and is now investigating the role of Class XI student who had confessed to the crime.

Before CBI took over the probe, the Haryana Police had claimed that Pradyuman was murdered by Ashok.
