The Central Bureau of Investigation which got custody of a Class 11 student in connection with the Pradyuman Thakur murder case will now focus on finding out if more people were involved. We need to reconstruct the crime scene, the CBI counsel told the Juvenile Justice Board.
Pradyuman was found murdered in the bathroom of the Ryan International School. There was a twist in the tale on Wednesday when the CBI said that the murder was committed by the 16 year old boy and not the conductor who was earlier made an accused in the case.
The 16 year old will now be taken to the crime scene. The CBI will also look to find out if more persons were involved in the murder. Further the CBI will also try and find out how and where the boy sourced the murder weapon from.
At a briefing the CBI said that the boy said that he had committed the murder to get the exams and a parent-teacher meet postponed.
The CBI said that the video footage of the crime was sufficient to seek the remand of the boy. No application has been moved to try him as an accused, the CBI further submitted before the board. The agency also said that it would want to question some of the teachers and other staff in the school.
