New Delhi: A day after apprehending a Class 11 student of Ryan International School in Gurgaon for allegedly killing seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur of the same school, the CBI on Thursday took the accused to a “certain place” for corroborating his statement.

The CBI special crime team, which is questioning him, remained tight-lipped about the exercise, saying it could affect the probe. However, sources said that during questioning, allowed by a juvenile court in Gurgaon on Wednesday, he was taken to a “certain place” to substantiate his statements before and after the crime.

 

The Class 11 student apprehended by the CBI on Tuesday night is being kept at Sewa Kutir in Kingsway Camp in North Delhi, from where he was brought to the CBI headquarters for questioning, sources said. 

They said the agency will go through extensive corroborative exercise, including identification of the person and shop which sold him the knife and a crime scene recreation before filing its report in the court. 

The accused Class 11 student has confessed to his crime in front of his father and an independent witness, the agency claimed before a juvenile court on Wednesday. 

It may be recalled  the Class 2 student was murdered on September 8 inside the Ryan International School. The gruesome murder of class 2 student triggered a furore. 

 

The CBI said the accused student had allegedly slit Pradyuman's throat to get the school to declare a holiday to defer a scheduled parent-teacher meeting and an examination. 

The agency did not find any evidence of sexual assault, a CBI spokesperson said on Wednesday. The Gurgaon juvenile court said his interrogation was needed to ascertain if there were other people involved. 

The CBI said his statement was yet to be recorded under CrPC Section 164. The confession of the student has little meaning as the statements need to be recorded before a court under Section 164 of CrPC. CBI sources said they were still probing the case and admission of crime is the beginning of a process of collecting corroborative forensic and legally tenable evidence.
