Gurgaon: In the latest development in Ryan International School student Pradyuman Thakur murder case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sources said the probe agency has found proof of Gurgaon Police destroying evidence.

The grief-stricken father of Pradyuman, who was done to death on September 8 inside Ryan International School near here, says prime suspect bus conductor Ashok Kumar could not have executed the crime alone and that some others were involved in it.
Seven-year-old Pradyuman was found dead with his throat slit in the washroom of Ryan International school in Bhondsi area on Sohna Road near Gurgaon on September 8.
The family of deceased Pradhuman had accused the police of botching up the investigation and said the CBI meticulously collected circumstantial evidences and facts.
The victim`s family demanded that the juvenile student be tried as an adult and be given a harsh punishment.
Pradyuman was found inside the toilet of the school with his throat slit on September 8.
Gurgaon Police Commissioner Sandeep Khairwar had declared in a press meet on September 10 that Ashok was the killer and that he had tried to sexually assault Pradyuman.
