The key eye­wit­nesses are not di­rectly blam­ing Ashok for the crime as it was the ac­cused who car­ried Pradyu­man to the am­bu­lance

GU­RU­GRAM: In the Pradyu­man Thakur mur­der case who was found killed in the bath­room of Ryan In­ter­na­tional School in Bhondsi, the Gu­ru­gram police has de­tained the gar­dener Harpal for ques­tion­ing as he was one of the first wit­nesses who saw the sev­enyear-old stu­dent when his throat was slit. The law en­force­ment of­fi­cials also ques­tioned var­i­ous em­ploy­ees school to col­lect ev­i­dences in the case.

Hav­ing set a dead­line for a week to com­plete its in­ves­ti­ga­tion last Satur­day, the district police are leav­ing no stone un­turned to make their case stronger.

Speak­ing to me­dia per­sons on Thurs­day, Gu­ru­gram Police Com­mis­sioner San­deep Khir­war said that they will be fil­ing the charge sheet in the case very soon.

He also as­serted that they had con­crete ev­i­dences to im­pli­cate the main ac­cused bus con­duc­tor Ashok of his crime.

While the state owned police is pur­su­ing re­lent­less in­ves­ti­ga­tion in the case, many res­i­dents in­clud­ing the par­ents of Prad­hyu­man have re­quested for the probe to be con­ducted by Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion (CBI).

Key eye­wit­nesses in the case like the bus driver and gar­dener have not di­rectly blamed Ashok of com­mit­ting the heinous crime and have claimed that it was the 42-yearold ac­cused who had car­ried Pradyu­man to the am­bu­lance.

While ma­jor dif­fer­ences are be­ing ex­pressed over who in re­al­ity mur­dered Pradyu­man, there are no such ar­gu­ments over the crim­i­nal neg­li­gence of the school lead­ing to the ma­jor tragedy.

The re­port by the Spe­cial In­ves­tiga­tive Team sub­mit­ted to Deputy Com­mis­sioner has al­ready in­crim­i­nated Ryan In­ter­na­tional School and its of­fi­cials of var­i­ous glar­ing lapses.

The ma­jor points in­clude com­mon toi­let for staff and chil­dren, CCTV’S not set up in right places, no ver­i­fi­ca­tion of em­ploy­ees and in­com­plete bound­ary wall.
