Gurgaon: The three accused in the gruesome murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur, who were earlier arrested by the Haryana Police, were sent to one day CBI custody on Saturday.
A day after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) got a notification from the Haryana government to probe the murder of Pradyuman, a three-member team of the investigation agency arrived at Ryan International School in Gurgaon.
Along with the central investigating agency, a 12-member forensic team also reached the school on Saturday morning.
The CBI had taken over the probe on Friday, hours after Pradyuman's father, Varun Thakur threatened to approach the Supreme Court if the agency did not start its investigation within two days.
The investigation till now was being carried out by the Gurgaon Police. Last week, the police had said a chargesheet had been prepared in the case, and it would be handed over to the CBI.
Pradyuman was found murdered inside a toilet of Ryan International School, Gurgaon with his throat slit on September 8.
Bus conductor of the school, Ashok was arrested for sexually assaulting the boy and killing him when he raised an alarm. However, the family of the accused had denied charges against Ashok saying that he was being wrongly framed.
Father of Pradyuman on Saturday said that he had suspected there's a background to Ashok coming as culprit but hoped that the CBI probes the case from a different angle.
