The class 11 student was nailed to be the accused in the brutal murder of class 2 student at Ryan International School by reconstructing the events, CCTV footage, and witness account from students and teachers, said CBI to juvenile Justice Board.
The CBI asking for the custody of the juvenile boy stated that the boy has confessed to his crime in front of his father, CBI official investigating the murder and other witnesses in the case. As declared in the application the juvenile’s date of birth is April 3, 2001.
Minutely probing the crime scene, viewing CCTV footage, reconstructing the events, questioning teachers, working staff, the police zeroed on the class 11 student.
Police officials have requested for a six day custodial interrogation to know the details of any person if involved in the crime other than the minor boy.
The CBI needs to further question the boy to know the shop from which he bought the knife, and to collect more evidence in connection to the case.
The class 11 student had been questioned several times after he was believed to see the boy’s body first in a pool of blood. But with each questioning the boy kept changing his account which made him come under the radar.
CBI also add that before the murder the boy bragged to his friends that they need not worry as the exams would be postponed. His school record shows he was "not a very good student", school authorities say.
CBI add that they have recovered a knife from a commode in the toilet which could be the weapon used for the murder. Sources also add that the school teachers and his friends have seen him carrying a knife to school.
