Pradyuman murder case: Bus conductor Ashok Kumar released from jail

In court, the CBI said as the investigation is still underway, and nobody has been given a clean chit.

Kumar, who spent 75 days in jail, has alleged torture at the hands of Gurgaon Police, which initially investigated the Pradyuman murder case.

Gurgaon: In a new twist to the Pradhyumn Thakur murder case, the maternal uncle of Ryan Bhondsi bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was granted bail by Gurgaon court on Tuesday, is under CBI scanner.

Kumar on Wednesday confirmed the allegations made against the Gurugram Police and said he was tortured by the cops and forced to confess to killing Pradyuman, according to an India Today report. The bail was reportedly granted with a Rs 50,000 security bond. "We have made a decision to file a case against Gurugram Police Special Investigation Team officers who framed and used torture and even drugged him to confess before the media that he had committed the crime", Ashok's father Amirchand had said.

Ashok was released on bail from Gurugram's Bhondsi jail on Wednesday evening.

Pradyuman, a class II students, was found dead in the toilet of the school with his throat slit on September 8. Ashok, who was arrested just hours after Pradyuman was killed at the Ryan International School, had confessed to killing the boy in front of media cameras a day after the murder.

Speaking to ANI, Ashok's sister-in-law said, "The police asked Ashok to say, he committed the crime and he won't be in trouble because of that".

The family of deceased Pradyuman had accused the police of botching up the investigation and said the CBI meticulously collected circumstantial evidence and facts.

The bail was granted as the CBI could not submit any evidence against the bus conductor.

Varun Thakur, the father of the victim, has moved the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) requesting the 16-year-old accused be treated as an adult during trial.
