Seven-year-old Pradyuman’s inconsolable mother and family are refusing to accept that bus conductor, Ashok Kumar, has sexually abused their little one and killed him. The alleged accused was arrested in a few hours after the gruesome murder.
Pradyuman’s mother said, “His father used to drop him to school and I used to bring back my child. He never went by scoolbus 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.”
Pradyuman’s paternal uncle demanded, “We want the school to be shut down. We demand a CBI inquiry and the school director to be arrested. The authorities want the child to be cremated to immediately. They want to silence us by lathicharging.”
Protesters outside the Ryan International School said “he is 42-year-old person and is handicapped. We doubt if the conductor is actually responsible and demand a thorough investigation.”
Gurgaon Police Commissioner, however, believes “the involvement of the bus conductor is confirmed if someone else is found involved, action will be taken against them as well.”
