Father of Pradyuman Thakur, who was killed inside Ryan International School in Gurugram, on Wednesday made interesting revelation by saying that Haryana Minister Rao Narbir Singh approached him and asked not to insist on CBI inquiry as it will take time and trust police probe.
Thakur said that he replied to Minister by saying that if CBI also comes to the same conclusion as police then they will accept it, but they want CBI probe first.
"I had just said that no government can recommend CBI inquiry on same day of incident, I told victim's family that let Police probe for a week or so if you are not satisfied then will recommend CBI," said Rao Narbir Singh.
Earlier on November 9, Rao Narbir Singh doubted CBI probe by saying that it is difficult to believe in CBI’s findings that the murder was executed by class XI student.
“I still can't believe that it was done by the Class XI student. I would just like to reiterate that there must be an impartial probe. Neither people nor I can believe CBI's findings,” Rao Narbir Singh.
Giving a new twist to the case, CBI said that a class XI student of Ryan International School killed seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur to postpone school examinations and parent teachers meeting.
CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said, "The student was apprehended after thorough investigation based on scientific evidences including inspection of crime scene, forensic analysis of CCTV and call records."
A CBI official, not willing to be named, told News Nation that the student told his fellow classmates not to prepare for examination as there will be a holiday in school prior to Pradyuman’s murder.
The officer further added, the 16-year-old was seen carrying a knife. “The class XI student was undergoing psychiatric treatment from last one year.”
