New Delhi: The Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) on Wednesday rejected a plea moved by the juvenile accused in the Pradyuman Thakur’s murder case.
According to reports, the accused had moved a petition urging the Juvenile Justice Board to delay its verdict on the plea of Pradyuman Thakur’s father that the juvenile be tried as an adult.
The board also allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take fingerprints of the 16-year-old accused in the sensational murder of the 7-year-old student of the Gurugram-based Ryan International School.
The Class XI student, who is accused of murdering Pradyuman, was produced before the JJB again on Wednesday. The board is set to hear accused’s bail plea on Friday.
The accused has been lodged in Faridabad’s observation home.
Earlier, a session court had granted bail to bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was arrested by the Haryana Police on the charge of killing Pradyuman.
Adding a fresh twist to the sensational murder case, the CBI later gave a clean chit to bus conductor Ashok Kumar. The central probe agency also trashed the investigation done by the Gurugram Police in the Pradyuman Thakur murder case and summoned several officials for questioning over alleged cover-up.
Pradyuman was found with his throat slit in the washroom of the Ryan International school in Bhondsi area on Sohna Road on September 8.
