The CBI, which is now investigating the murder of Pradyuman in the Ryan International school premises, on Wednesday, arrested the class 11th student in connection with the case.

The accused juvenile was earlier remanded to a three-day CBI custody and was produced before the court today.

The family and lawyers of Pradyuman had demanded that the accused be tried as an adult and be given strict punishment.

The Class 11 student had allegedly murdered Pradyuman to postpone a parent-teacher meeting and exams 

The family accused the local police of botching up the investigation and said the Central Bureau of Investigation meticulously collected circumstantial evidence and facts. They also alleged a larger conspiracy behind the murder and said that they want the CBI to file a charge sheet soon.

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.
