In recent times, we never came across with such a sensational murder case. On Wednesday, when CBI identified a 16-year-old class 11 student of the same school – The Ryan campus in Gurgaon’s Bhondsi, as the prime suspect.
Earlier, the school bus conductor Ashok Kumar was arrested by Gurgaon police for the murder of a 7-year-old student, Pradhyumn Thakur, of Ryan International School that hit the headlines, but the parents of the child didn’t think the police caught the right man.
The case went to CBI, who revealed, the 16-year-old of the same school as the prime suspect. What is the motive? According to the CBI investigating officer, the boy “planned the murder to avoid an exam that day and also wanted to postpone a parent-teacher meeting and was discovering ways of doing it”. In the process, “he felt that something big would force the authorities to shut the school”.
While the bus conductor was given a clean chit by the CBI, as they found nothing against him as claimed by Gurgaon police.
Pradhyumn, a class 2 student, was found dead, with his throat slit just outside the ground floor washroom of the school on September 8 morning. His father like normal dropped Pradhyumn and his sister Vidhi, who is a fifth-grade student in the same campus.
The CBI officer said the class 11 student “lured Pradhyumn inside the washroom on the pretext of discussing something important, and within seconds, slit his throat”. The teenager knew that somebody was going to die on that day, as he came planned by bringing a knife along with him to the school, it was just unfortunate for Pradhyumn to be at the wrong place at the wrong time” concludes the CBI officer.
The motivation and events involved in committing a crime should be taken into consideration rather than the age of the criminal while giving the judgment.
