Teachers had noticed the suspect - reportedly under psychiatric evaluation over anger issues - bringing a knife to school four days before the murder, but the Gurugram police did not give any importance to this crucial bit of information, sources said.
The 16-year-old accused, who allegedly killed 7-year-old Pradhuman Thakur on September 8, was arrested by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) after being on scanner of investigators for more than a month. He saw Pradyuman entering the school premises and he took him to the washroom on some pretext, stood behind him and then slit his throat.
He said the CBI was the top investigating agency in the country and people always demanded a probe by CBI when they were not satisfied by investigation done by local police. At present, he may be sent to an observation home. The Gurugram juvenile court on Saturday ordered the teenage accused to be sent to an observation home in Faridabad till November 22, the next date of hearing in the Pradhyumn murder case. During their raid, the CBI officers took his shoes, books, bag and hard disk along with them.
Now, the Juvenile Justice Board has sought clarification from the CBI as to why it violated the timings of the minor's interrogation as set by the Gurugram juvenile court.

India's premiere probe agency has said the accused committed crime in order to postpone the parents-teachers meeting and the exams.
The CBI, however, denied all allegations of torturing the accused. "CBI officials wanted him to be sent to the juvenile home in Delhi but we fought against that because as per the jurisdiction he should be sent to the Faridabad juvenile home".
