The murder case of the seven-year-old student is becoming mysterious by each passing day. However, the doctors claimed he died within two minutes of the attack.

'I saw two supporting staffers of the school carrying Pradyuman in their arms. "He had put Praduman on the rear seat of the vehicle and teachers took him to hospital", Raghav told Mail Today.

Other witnesses also claim that the teachers ordered the culprit, Ashok Kumar, to carry the child to the auto. AF Pinto and Grace Pinot are the founders of the Ryan chain of schools. The official said more details would be provided later.

The child's father has now moved the case to the CBI, while the Ryan International School has moved the case to the Supreme Court. The Pintos, in their pleas, said while the death of the boy was unfortunate, the management can not be held culpable and that they themselves were victims of the unfortunate circumstances. His windpipe got severed and hence, he could not scream for help.

Reacting to the brutal crime, actress Renuka Shahane took to Facebook to express her shock and dismay over the callous manner in which sexual predators are able to target children within institutions like schools, where one assumes children will be safe. Though DCP Singh didn't disclose the motive behind the killing, sources said Kumar killed the child after failing to sexually assault him.

Gurugram: Bus conductor Ashok Kumar being escorted by police.A witness has cast doubt on whether the employee was responsible for the death of seven-year-old Praduman Thakur. Some more arrests are likely to take place soon, he further said.

The accused was held on Friday after he confessed to the crime, officials said. The apparent intention behind claiming the knife to be a part of the toolkit seems to present the fact that how easily the crime weapon was accessible to the conductor and there was nothing sneaked in from outside. The investigators also suspected the involvement of a third person.

According to ACP Manish Sehgal, Gurgaon, they are still questioning the school staff. It has seen the owners of the school in Gurugram moving the Bombay High Court for anticipatory transit bail, while its CEO Ryan Pinto is being questioned by the law enforcement authorities.

Some reports say that the management has made a decision to shut down the school for an indefinite period. The Haryana police have formed 14 teams to probe the case, which has triggered massive outrage.

The petition demands periodic safety audits of schools and a regulatory body to keep a watch on whether or not schools are complying with the safety and security measures.
