I Stabbed Him Twice As He Objected To Sex: Bus Conductor, Ryan International School
One day after the horrific murder of eight years old student, Pradyuman Thakur, in Ryan International School at Bhondsi, Gurugram, which shocked the nation, the conductor of the school bus, Ashok Kumar 42, has confessed that he killed the boy.
In the confession after his arrest he admitted, “I was doing some objectionable activities alone inside the bathroom. The boy came inside and saw me. I got scared and pulled him inside. Then I attempted to have sex with the boy, he objected. I pulled him again and he fell on the ground. I panicked and slit his throat with a knife. I stabbed him twice near the part of his throat and ears. The boy cried and yelled, I flew away.”
Pradyuman’s father Vinod Chand Thakur said that he used to drop Pradyuman at school every day. On 8th August, he dropped his son and daughter at the gate of Ryan International School and came back home. After fifteen minutes, he got distressed calls from Ryan International School that his son fell in the bathroom. The school management took the boy to Artemis hospital. Vinod reached the hospital and saw the body of his son.
The victim’s father complained, “Simply arresting the bus conductor is not sufficient. It is negligence of part of the school administration and they should be booked.”
“The school couldn’t even ensure basic safety for my son, how will then parents send children to school,” told the victim’s mother Jyoti to ANI.
The police is investigating different possible angles and motives behind the murder. The Deputy Commissioner of Police South Gurugram, Ashok Bakshi, said, “The accused has been arrested and we are also integrating POCSO Act in this case. More names will be added soon.”
Amid calls for strict action against the school, the acting principal is suspended. “Principal Neerja Batra has been suspended. A special committee is probing the case. We took action against the security agency of the school,” said Gurugram Deputy Commissioner of Police Simardeep Singh.Angry protestors outside the school and commissioner office are demanding strict actions against Ryan International School. Most of them are adamant to punish the bigger culprits, the school administration. The outrage among other parents seems obvious as their wards are also studying in that school. The protestors also tried to block Sohna Highway but the police handled the situation.
Vinod Thakur reached the Police Commissioner’s office with lawyer to demand action against the school. The alleged assailant Ashok Kumar will be produced before the court this afternoon.
