    There was a sensational twist in the Ryan International school murder case. The CBI said on Wednesday that the murder of Pradyuman Thakur was committed by a class 11 student and not the conductor as was alleged by the Haryana police.

    The CCTV footage which was examined by the CBI was extremely crucial. The case was cracked based on that footage and the same was submitted before the Juvenile Justice Board when the CBI sought the remand of the accused student.

    A CBI source said that based on the crime scene analysis and video footage, they learnt that the matter was conducted in 3 minutes. Sources said that the child in conflict had planned the murder on September 8, the same day Pradyuman was found dead. However he had not identified any target. Since he had found the boy to be alone, he went ahead and killed him. It was a coincidence that Pradhyumn reached the toilet and became the victim, the source also added.

    We were able to piece together the evidence with the help of the footage, forensic analysis. We also questioned the teachers and students, the CBI official also said.

    The probe that was conducted by the Haryana police alleged that it was the school bus conductor who had committed the murder. The cops also said that there was a case of sexual assault too.

    However both the postmortem report and the CBI rubbished the sexual assault theory. No such evidence was found the CBI official also said.

    Based on CCTV footage and crime scene analysis, the agency examined all the suspects in the matter, sources said. Ryan Pinto, owner of the Ryan International School chain, is yet to be questioned in the case. The mobile records of all the suspects were scrutinised and examined by the CBI special crime team.
