Gurugram, Nov 21 : A sessions court here on Tuesday granted bail to bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was arrested by the Haryana Police on the charge of killing Class two student Pradhuman Thakur.
Additional District and Session Judge Rajni Yadav granted bail to Ashok on furnishing a Rs 50,000 bail bond.
Pradhuman, aged seven, was found on September 8 morning in the washroom of the Ryan International school in Bhondsi area on Sohna Road with his throat slit.
Gurugram police arrested Ashok Kumar the same day, claiming that he murdered the child after failing to sodomise him.
Two school staff and Ashok’s family however claimed he was made a scapegoat since he was poor.
The Central Bureau of Investigation took over the murder case on September 22 and arrested a Class 11 student of the same school on November 8. The arrested 16-year-old has been lodged in Faridabad’s observation home.
Ashok was in jail even after the arrest of the school student.
