Ryan murder case: Haryana CM Khattar assures CBI inquiry into Pradyuman's killing

"The state government will take over the school management for three months". The investigation into the murder of an eight-year-old student in Gurgaon's Ryan International School has been handed to the Central Bureau of Investigation, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Friday. He, however, confirmed that the school management would be taken over by the state for next three months.

Pradyuman Thakur, the seven-year-old boy, was found lying in a pool of blood in a toilet in the school on September 8.

Just after the killing of Pradyuman, the conductor Ashok confessed to his crime in front of the police.

He said keeping in view the situation in the wake of case, the deputy commissioner, Gurgaon has been appointed as the Administrator of Ryan International School in Bhondsi for three months.

The doctor who performed the post-mortem had confirmed that Pradyuman had been murdered but ruled out sexual assault. The incident triggered angry protests by parents who were left shocked by the ghastly murder and demanded a CBI probe into the incident. "Glad that the sensitivity this case deserved has been shown", the father of the victim said shortly after the CBI probe was announced, ANI reported.

"The Haryana Police has been properly conducting an investigation in this case. I appeal to the CBI to investigate the case as expeditiously as possible", he added. The principal of the school was also suspended. The SIT probe found shocking laxity on the part of the school regarding security and safety of the children. "Ashok told me that when his statement was recorded by police, he was given an injection and police even gave him electric shocks to extract a confession", the advocate claimed. "I am also assuring them that the culprits in this case whether it is from the school management or otherwise, will not be spared", Khattar said.
