New Delhi: The Gurgaon Sessions Court on Thursday asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a detailed reply regarding the basis of bus conductor Ashok’s arrest by 2:00 pm in connection with the Pradyuman murder case, after the probe agency failed to furnish the same before the court.

“The court asked on what basis Ashok was arrested. The CBI was not able to give a response to it. Now, the court has asked the CBI to file a detailed reply by 2:00 pm after which the arguments will be heard,” Ashok's lawyer, Mohit Verma said.

 

Earlier in the day, Verma had moved a bail plea in the court, after the bus conductor was cleared of the charges.

The bail plea pending before the court is scheduled for a hearing on November 17 and states that the accused conductor is “falsely implicated” in the case.

Last week, the investigative agency arrested a class XI student of the Ryan International School for the murder of his junior Pradyuman Thakur, and gave a clean chit to Ashok, who was arrested by the Gurgaon Police for the murder and sexual assault of the child.
