Ryan International School murder case: Apprehended juvenile admits 'involvement' in the killing

The mystery surrounding the murder of a seven-year-old Ryan International School student, who was found dead in the school toilet on 7 September, could be reaching its conclusion, after the Class 11 student apprehended by the CBI admitted his involvement in the case.

The CBI has asked for the 16-year-old boy's custody in order to find out if any other people were involved in the crime, and to also unearth the sequence of events leading to the Class 2 student's death, and to "unearth the conspiracy, if any".

The CBI has asserted that after inspecting the crime scene, the CCTV footage, movement of students near the crime scene and questioning people in the school, it has identified and apprehended the accused. The accused, in the presence of his father, independent witnesses, and the welfare officer of the CBI, has admitted his involvement in the murder, the agency said.

Earlier on Thursday, police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar defended the Gurugram Police during a press conference in which he faced tough and often angry questions from reporters. "We followed whatever evidence came before us," Khirwar told reporters.

He refused to discuss specific evidence on the basis of which the police had earlier arrested school bus conductor Ashok Kumar. "We carried out various investigative steps. I will not be discussing the evidence against somebody. I am sure the CBI will follow up on that," he said.

The CBI's findings in the case came as an embarrassment to the state police as the CBI said that a Class XI student who allegedly wanted a parent-teacher meeting and examinations to be postponed had been apprehended in connection with the murder.
