The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a 5,000-page chargesheet in the murder of an eight-year-old student at Gurugram’s Ryan International School, charging a Class 11 student of the same school with murder. The Gurugram session’s court hearing the matter, also rejected the accused’s bail plea saying the stage was not fit for granting bail.

The CBI charged the juvenile offender with the murder of Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student, who apparently killed the child in a bid to postpone exams. The agency, however, said that a separate investigation around the dubious role of Haryana Police in the preliminary investigation of the case and the school administration’s role is still ongoing. The current charge sheet only relates to the murder of Pradyuman.

A sessions court on May 21, dismissed the plea of a 16-year-old student, challenging the Juvenile Justice Board’s (JJB) decision declaring him as an adult, in the murder case of a seven-year-old boy at a private school. Additional Sessions Judge Jasbir Singh Kundu junked the appeal of the student along with other two pleas in the case.

The court had earlier granted time till 4 July to the CBI to file a supplementary charge sheet in the murder case of a seven-year-old boy at a private school. Advocate Sushil Tekriwal, lawyer for the victim seven-year-old boy, had argued that the JJB’s order declaring the 16-year-old accused as an adult was “well-reasoned” and there was no fault and “nothing illegal” in it.

“I welcome the judgement by the Gurugram district court. I hope my child will get justice in the case,” the father of the victim told News18. The counsel for the a 16-year-old accused had challenged the JJB order, saying it was “bad in law” and passed without giving him proper opportunity to present his case.

Earlier, the court had barred the media from using the name of the 16-year-old juvenile accused in the case and asked it to use fictitious names instead. While the seven-year-old victim was named “Prince” by the court, the juvenile accused was named “Bholu” and the school was referred to as “Vidyalaya”. The JJB had on 20 December last year held that the teenager would be tried as an adult and directed his production before the Gurugram Sessions Court.

The CBI, in a charge sheet, had alleged that the teenager had murdered the student on 8 September last year in a bid to get the examinations postponed and a scheduled parent-teacher meeting cancelled. The victim’s body, with the throat slit, was found in the washroom of the school. The probe agency gave a clean chit to school bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was earlier arrested by the Gurgaon Police, saying there was no evidence to prove his involvement in the crime.

The CBI had taken up the case from the Gurgaon police on 22 September, following a nationwide uproar over the gruesome killing.

Judgment
