Pradyuman murder: Juvenile 'retracts confession'

Since the CBI identified the Class 11 student as an accused last week, it has been trying to unravel how he managed to fool the Gurgaon police.Sources claimed the four SIT members the CBI had called for questioning on Monday were an ACP, an inspector, a sub-inspector and an official of lower rank.

It was only once the CBI took over the case and dug a little deeper, that the real culprit came into light.

The CBI said that the accused committed the crime in order to postpone the parents-teachers meeting and the exams.

In a complete u-turn the juvenile has retracted his statement given to the CBI in connection with the Ryan murder case. The team members, however, remained silent on exactly how they made this grave error.

The initial eight seconds of the CCTV footage shows alleged accused - a Class XI student - calling Pradyuman to the washroom.

While the police team had apprehended Ashok Kumar, who was working as a conductor in the school bus for the murder, the CBI investigation gave him a clean chit and detained the juvenile who studies in the same school.

The CBI is concerned over the reasons as to why the SIT either missed or misinterpreted evidence, which allowed the "accused" Class XI studen to walk scot-free under the garb of a key witness.

The investigating agency suspects a knife believed to be the murder weapon was planted on the conductor; Ashok Kumar's family has alleged that he was tortured and forced to confess to a crime he didn't commit. Days later, the police arrested a school bus conductor for the murder; he allegedly confessed to killing Pradhyumn.

Meanwhile, the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) on Saturday sought a clarification from the CBI based on an application filed by the accused's father as to why it violated the timings of interrogation of the juvenile delinquent. "We want CBI to probe this angle also and even investigate the torture of my husband", said Mamta.
