NEW DELHI, Sep 14 : Was Pradyuman Thakur, a seven-year-old student of Ryan International School in Gurgaon, murdered by more than one person? Was bus conductor Ashok Kumar, arrested for murdering the boy, falsely implicated in the case that has grabbed national attention?
Answers to these questions may get clearer with Gurgaon Police taking into custody CCTV footage that shows the sequence of events leading up to and the moments right after the Pradyuman Thakur’s murder. The footage includes video from a camera outside the Ryan school washroom where the seven-year-old was murdered.
At 7.55 am, Pradyuman arrives at school – his father Varun drops the boy and his sister off at the school’s main gate – the same gate through which Ashok had entered minutes earlier. While Pradyuman’s sister heads to her classroom, the boy goes to the washroom.
CCTV footage from a camera near the washroom shows both Ashok and Pradyuman entering the bathroom, one after another. The area around the washroom is seen deserted between 7.55 am and 8.05 am, which is when Ashok is seen coming out of the bathroom.
Notably, the CCTV footage does not show a third person entering the bathroom between 7.55 am and 8.05 am.
Seconds after Ashok leaves the washroom, Pradyuman is seen crawling out, holding his neck with his hand.
