"Do you think such a young boy would behave normally for so many days had he committed such a serious crime?" the boy's father asked.

The CBI has denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, the Juvenile Justice Board sought clarification from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for violating the timings of interrogation of the accused class 11 student.

 

Pradyuman was found dead inside the toilet of the Ryan International School, Gurgaon, with his throat slit on September 8.

Earlier on Friday, sources said that the CBI was probing the involvement of a second student of the school in the murder.

The cold-blooded murder of the seven-year-old Pradyuman took a new dimension on Wednesday after the CBI trashed the probe by the Gurgaon police and gave a clean chit to the bus conductor arrested with the charges of murder and sexual assault. The investigating agency arrested a juvenile, who was produced before the Juvenile Justice Board on Thursday. The teen was sent to the CBI custody for three days.
