New Delhi: A new angle has emerged in Ryan International School murder case with the family of accused bus conductor Ashok Kumar saying that he was "beaten up and pressurized to give wrong statements". "My brother has been beaten up & pressurized to give wrong statements. The school principal has bribed the police," said sister of the accused bus conductor.
"My son is innocent, he is just being framed; all this because of the school," said the father of accused Bus conductor Ashok.
Interestingly, even the family of the victim Pradyuman firmly believes that the bus conductor is not the murderer. Pradyuman’s mother said, “His father used to drop him to school and I used to bring back my child. He never went by schoolbus since our house is just 5 minutes away. I got a call from the school immediately after he left him saying Pradyuman is suffering from bleeding and asked us to rush to the hospital. I want the principal to be caught since she is lying and should be beaten up black and blue.”
Pradyuman’s grandmother said the “bus conductor is not responsible and is not the real culprit. We believe the real culprit is being hidden. The conductor is paid and asked to accept the crime and being made the scapegoat.”
The seven-year-old Pradyuman was allegedly killed by the school bus conductor, who was arrested on Friday.
Ashok also confessed that he killed the boy.
The Gurugram Police, hours after the incident, confirmed that the accused bus conductor tried to sexually assault the boy before killing him. Cops said that accused killed the boy when he tried to resist. (With inputs from ANI)
