Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) revealed groundbreaking details on Wednesday morning in the Ryan International School murder case. CBI quizzed at least 25 students of Ryan International School and questioned the arrested student thoroughly. After completing the preliminary questioning of the arrested student, the CBI said that the boy killed Pradyuman because he wanted the parent-teacher meeting and the school examination to be postponed. CBI said that there was no sexual abuse done to the murdered 7-year-old Pradyuman and the school bus conductor, who was arrested earlier on the charges of the murder, has not been given the clean chit yet.

Pradhyuman, Class 2 student of Ryan International School, Gurugram was found murdered with his throat slit in the toilet of the school on September 8, 2017. After a month-long investigation conducted by Gurugram Police, bus conductor Ashok Kumar was arrested for the murder of the seven-year-old. After the arrest of the conductor, the police claimed that Ashok tried to sexually assault Pradyuman.  “But when the student resisted and cried, Ashok killed him and fled after leaving the knife behind,” the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Gurugram said.
