Bus conductor in Ryan case released on bail

Bus conductor in Ryan case released on bail

A Gurgaon court went ahead and released Ashok Kumar on bail; he walked out of a jail Wednesday evening.

Additional District and Session Judge Rajni Yadav granted bail to Ashok on furnishing a Rs 50,000 bail bond.

The Haryana Police had claimed that Ashok had tried to molest Pradyuman, killing him with a knife when he resisted.

Speaking to ANI, Ashok's sister-in-law said, "The police asked Ashok to say, he committed the crime and he won't be in trouble because of that". The court has reserved its order till Tuesday.

She also said, Ashok said her that a madam ordered him to carry on the body (Pradyuman's body) in the auto and that he just helped.

Kumar's uncle Omprakash Chopra was summoned by CBI on Tuesday, after an audio clip, purportedly of him talking to a family member of the juvenile suspect, was circulated on messenger platforms. It stated that Kumar's blood sample does not match the blood sample of the killer's blood which was found on Pradyuman's clothes. They told him that the whole nation is distressed due to the case and so he must confess.




He is not out of the woods yet; the CBI hasn't given him a clean chit. There were lot of differences between findings of CBI and Haryana Police.

His wife further said Ashok had no idea that the police and the authorities will aim him on the basis of that.

The family of deceased Pradyuman had accused the police of botching up the investigation and said the CBI meticulously collected circumstantial evidence and facts.

Ashok got bail days after the Central Bureau of Investigation apprehended a Class XI student of the same school alleging he murdered Pradyuman. The studnet allegedly killed Pradyuman in a bid to postpone Parents Teachers meet and a unit test.

Varun Thakur, the father of the victim, has moved the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) requesting the 16-year-old accused be treated as an adult during trial.

The probe agency accepted that it had no incriminating evidence against Kumar.
