Pradhyumn murder case: Minor suspect's father alleges torture, CBI denies

Pradhyumn murder case: Minor suspect's father alleges torture, CBI denies

The CBI said he will be kept there until November 22 when the next hearing takes place.

The CBI suffered a jolt as the owner of a shop from where Ryan International School's 16-year-old student is suspected to have procured a knife to kill his Class II junior has failed to identify him.

Teachers had noticed the suspect - reportedly under psychiatric evaluation over anger issues - bringing a knife to school four days before the murder, but the Gurugram police did not give any importance to this crucial bit of information, sources said.

"The boy has been sent to Faridabad observation home till 22nd November, which is also the date of next hearing", news agency ANI quoted arrested juvenile's lawyer, Sandeep Aneja, as saying.

Senate GOP Unveils Tax Bill With More Pain for Blue States
But the Senate already seems unlikely to meet that deadline because of complex rules governing how it must consider the tax bill. The result was that the total tax owed under the Senate plan was $13,969, while the total under the House plan was $17,550.

"The custodial interrogation of the child in conflict with law is nearly complete and he is no more required in police custody".

"Since the investigation is at a very sensitive stage, we would not like to offer any comment at this stage on any aspect of the probe", said CBI spokesman Abhishek Dayal.

When asked whether the teenager was considered a suspect during the probe, the agency, which took over the case on September 22, remained tight lipped on the order. "My son is being tortured, he was hung upside down and brutally thrashed".

He said the Haryana Police had implicated some people in a murder and gang-rape case in Dingar Heri village near Gurugram two years ago.

Iran ballistic missile programme non-negotiable
Eight reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have confirmed Iran's full compliance with the agreement. During his visit to the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, Macron suggested amending the JCPOA.

The CBI, however, denied all allegations of torturing the accused.

An application in the court was also filed by the father of the accused alleging that CBI had violated the norms set by the court to interrogate the juvenile.

Earlier, the CBI produced the accused, who is a minor, before the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) and demanded his six-day custody.

According to the CBI, the murder weapon which was used by the accused is the same as that was recovered by the Gurugram police from the commode of the washroom where Pradyuman was killed. The agency may not quite match the investigative skills and standards of America's Federal Bureau of Investigation, yet the clamour continues to call it in to crack sensitive cases, and state governments too are often keen to pass the buck.
