The BJP MLA from Gurugram also sought stringent action against police officers who ended up arresting bus conductor Ashok Kumar for Pradhuman's murder. The cops also admitted that they didn't watch the closed circuit television (CCTV) footage carefully.
"Our investigations have ruled out Kumar's involvement in the murder; we are considering not opposing his bail application", a senior agency official said.
The CBI is concerned over the reasons as to why the SIT either missed or misinterpreted evidence, which allowed the "accused" Class XI studen to walk scot-free under the garb of a key witness. "We want proper investigation and justice", Mamata said.
Kumar's bail plea will come up on Thursday. After nearly 2 months of probe in the controversial murder case, CBI had concluded that not the bus conductor but a 16-year-old class 11 student is the main culprit.
CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal had said that the accused was weak in studies and "wanted to have the examination and parent-teacher meeting postponed".
Earlier on Friday, CBI sources revealed that the accused teenager had researched about the use of poison and the process of erasing fingerprints on the internet.
This statement will be presented before the Principal Magistrate of the Juvenile Justice Board.
Summary: On Monday, the CBI asked the CWC in writing to file the social investigation report within 15 days.
"Investigators suspect that after killing the student by slitting his throat, the accused deliberately threw the weapon, a knife which he procured a day before the murder from Sohna, in the commode of the toilet where the incident took place on September 8", said a CBI source.
While the CBI has arrested a Class XI student, it is being suspected that a co-accused was involved and the victim's father too had claimed that he suspected involvement of some well-placed school official who was saved by making the conductor a scapegoat.
Earlier in the day, the father of the Ryan International School student claimed his son to be "innocent" and said that he was being beaten up by the probe agency.
