“Now it is almost clear that my son Ashok was framed and made a scapegoat. We have decided to file a case against Gurugram Police SIT officers who framed and used torture and even drugged him to confess before the media that he had committed the crime,” said Ashok’s father Amirchand, according to media reports.
He also said the family was seeking financial help from the villagers in filing the case. “Villagers are with us and they all want us to demand justice for Ashok and action against irresponsible police officials,” he said.
While on Nov 8, in a sensational twist to the case, CBI said it had detained a senior student of Ryan International School in connection with the murder of Pradyuman Thakur
Apparently, the CBI rejecting the Gurugram police’s claim Ashok Kumar was the killer The CBI said that there was no evidence against Kumar so far.
The agency said the 16-year-old boy killed Pradyuman so that upcoming parent-teacher meeting and exams can be postponed.
While this was so, the political blame game has already begun. Ashok Tanwar, Haryana Congress president blamed the Khattar government and said it was an overall â€˜failureâ€™ of his government.
However, Chief MinisterÂ Manohar Lal Khattar defended Haryana Police saying they were yet to complete their investigation.
“Haryana police had not completed its investigation. When investigations were on, a demand was raised that the matter be handed over to the CBI. It was handed over to them. CBI is now conducting investigations. It is their job, not ours. Where CBI investigation leads to, ultimately what results are there…,” he said.
