New Delhi:

A Gurugram court on Thursday posted the bail plea hearing of Ashok Kumar, an accused in the murder of Ryan International School student Pradhuman Thakur, to November 20.

The matter was placed in court of Additional Sessions Judge Rajni Yadav which remained inconclusive.

The judge heard the CBI counsel and the Kumar’s defence lawyer over bail application and deferred the matter for next Monday.

Sushil Tekriwal, counsel of Pradyuman’s father Barun Chandra, argued for rejecting Kumar’s bail.

Tekriwal said the court deferred the hearing on Kumar’s bail plea to November 20.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which is investigating the case submitted its probe report, including the CCTV footage.

The CBI counsel said Kumar’s role in the crime has not been ascertained yet, but a decision on giving him a clean chit could be taken only when scientific reports were out.

Meanwhile, the accused’s counsel, Mohit Verma, argued that his client was being framed.
