The murder of Class II student Pradyuman Thakur at Ryan International School is ending up in ambiguity with each passing day as Gurugram police seeks more time to file a chargesheet before district and session court.

Earlier a day after the murder, the police claimed to submit the the chargesheet within a week. However, now Gurugram police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar on Thursday said the police need seven working days.

"We will be filing the chargesheet very soon. We have set strict deadlines for ourselves and hope to keep this. However, we will not reveal the exact date", Khirwar said.

In order to find more leads in the case, the police called upon the teaching and non-teaching staff on questioning.

"The statements of school staff will be recorded separately and if required thier statements will be corroborated and teachers can be cross-questioned. The purpose of the cross-questioning is to know the location and role of each and every staff member who was present inside the school on the day when Pradyuman was murdered", a senior police officer said.

"The teachers' statements are important for filing the chargesheet", the police officer added.

According to Mail Today, a senior SIT official said that whoever slit the throat had attacked Pradyuman from behind while he was carrying a school on bag on his back. That could be the reason the attackers' footprint did not appear on the floor.

The official added that the timing of blood coming from the neck is also important and hence police are awaiting forensic reports to know the timing.
