Haryana min­is­ter told us not to de­mand CBI probe: Varun Thakur

Mid Day - - NATION -

A day be­fore Haryana Chief Min­is­ter Manohar Lal Khat­tar an­nounced a CBI probe into the mur­der of a Std II stu­dent here, Haryana cab­i­net min­is­ter Rao Nar­bir Singh told the fam­ily not to de­mand a CBI probe, the boy's fa­ther said on Tues­day.

On Septem­ber 14, Nar­bir Singh vis­ited the house of seven-year-old Pradyu­man Thakur, who was mur­dered in Ryan In­ter­na­tional School on Septem­ber 8, and spoke strongly against a probe by the Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion (CBI), fa­ther Varun Chan­dra Thakur said.

“CBI is just a big name and noth­ing more. The agency al­ready has lots of work­load and it will not be able to probe the case even in a year or more. Haryana Po­lice is a bet­ter agency than CBI and it will de­liver its re­port within a stip­u­lated time,” Thakur quoted the min­is­ter as say­ing.
