Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday said the allegations levelled against the Haryana Police in connection with the Pradyuman Thakur murder case were being investigated. The Haryana Police had falsely accused and arrested the driver of the school bus, Ashok Kumar, in connection with the murder of the seven-year-old Ryan student of class 2.
"The matter is being investigated and action will be taken against the guilty," Khattar said in Ambala.
Speaking to news agency, Ashok Kumar's wife said, "Police beat him (Kumar) up, hung him upside down, tortured him and even sedated him to make him confess."
Ashok was sent to judicial custody in Bhondsi Jail. He was released after 76 days after a Gurgaon court granted him bail.

The chinks in the Gurgaon Police theory were laid bare by CBI investigations which revealed that the real culprit was not Ashok Kumar but a senior student of the same school.
Pradyuman was found with his throat slit in the toilet of the school in Bhondsi, Gurgaon, on September 8.
