In a new twist to the Ryan murder case, the CBI has now reportedly arrested a Class XI student.

On September 8, the news of 7-year-old Pradhuman Thakur's death rocked the nation. A class II student of Ryan International School, Bhondsi, Gurugram, he was reportedly found murdered in the school washroom with his throat slit.

Following which, a school bus conductor was arrested and questioned by the police as well as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Pradhuman murdered by another student?

And while it looked as though this may have been a case of sexual assault by the conductor, fresh investigations reveal that Pradhuman may have been murdered by a fellow student.

Yes, you read that right.

In a new twist to the plot, the CBI has now reportedly arrested a Class XI student alleging that he may have done it to postpone exams at the school.

"The student will be produced before Juvenile Justice Board in afternoon, which will take a call whether to treat him as a major or minor under amended JJ Act (2016)," reported DNA.

Incidentally, this student has been under investigation since the beginning. He has already been questioned five times in the case at the CBI headquarters as well as the school.

"Around 11 pm, they told me that he has murdered Pradyuman"

However, he allegedly denied committing the crime even though he was seen carrying a knife to the school.

The father of the child under investigation also stated that his son was innocent and was being framed by the investigators. “The CBI questioned him the whole day and did not let me meet him. Around 11 pm, they told me that he has murdered Pradyuman,” he told news18.

Although at the moment the CBI has not released any statement about this arrest, it looks like they already have enough evidence to indict the student. Sources at the CBI told India Today, "We have material evidence as well."

While final investigations are yet to be revealed, it seems that CBI is on the edge of solving it and brining the murderer to justice.
