A minister from Haryana finds himself in a spot of bother after he was accused of trying to coax the father of Pradyuman Thakur not to insist on a CBI probe.
The father of the boy who was murdered at the Ryan International School said that he was asked by Haryana Minister, Rao Narbir Singh not to insist on a CBI probe. He said that trust the Haryana police, the father Varun Thakur also alleged.
Varun however told the minister, "if CBI also comes to the same conclusion as Police then we will accept it, but we want CBI probe first." The allegations have however been denied by the minister.
"I had just said that no Govt can recommend CBI inquiry on same day of incident, I told the victim's family to allow police probe for a week or so.. if not satisfied then will recommend CBI," Rao said.
It may be recalled that the Gurgaon police had accused a bus conductor of the murder.
The CBI which took over the probe absolved the conductor of the charges and said that it was a class 11 who committed the murder in a bid to get the examinations postponed.
