Pradyuman murder case: CBI detains class 11 student of Ryan school, to hold press conference

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday will hold a press conference on Wednesday after TV reports said a Class 11 student was detained in connection with the murder of a second grader at the Ryan International School in Gurgaon.

A bus conductor was arrested in September over the alleged sexual assault and murder of 8-year-old Pradyuman at the school in Gurgaon. The boy was found outside a school toilet, crawling and bleeding profusely before he died.

The matter was later handed over to the CBI after the victim's parents demanded an independent probe and moved the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile the father of the Class 11 student said his son was taken in for questioning by CBI a day before. The agency then told the father his son was being arrested because he had committed, he claimed.

"We have been cooperating with the police from day one. My son's statement under section 164 of CrPC was also recorded. The CBI questioned him repeatedly and we cooperated," he told media, alleging his son was being framed.
