New Delhi: A class XI student of Ryan International School killed seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur to postpone school examinations and parent teachers meeting. The fact surfaced up after the student was detained by sleuths of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday evening.

CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said, 'The student was apprehended after thorough investigation based on scientific evidences including inspection of crime scene, forensic analysis of CCTV and call records.'

According to a CBI official, not willing to be named, told News Nation that the detained told his fellow classmates not to prepare for examination as there will be a holiday in school prior to Pradyuman's murder.

The officer further added, the 16-year-old student of Ryan International School was seen carrying a knife. 'The class XI student was undergoing psychiatric treatment from last one year.'

Another CBI officer, part of the investigating team probing Pradyuman murder case, said, 'No sexual assault theory came out during investigation.'

The CBI official further told News Nation that the detained will be produced in the juvenile justice board at 2 pm. 'The court will decide whether to treat the student as minor or major under amended JJ Act (2016).'

He further added that the CBI will seek custody of the juvenile student and the investigative agency has yet not given a clean chit to the bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was  arrested by Gurugram Police in connection to the murder.
