In a fresh twist in the sensational Ryan International murder case, the accused class XI student has allegedly told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) that he did not kill his junior Pradyuman Thakur and he was forced to confess the crime.

As per Hindustan Times report, the teenager has even accused the CBI investigators of torturing and abusing him.

According to the report, the class XI student's version of the development on the day Pradyuman's murder took place was completely different from what the CBI has been presenting before the media.

The development comes few days after the father of the juvenile accused said that his son was innocent and that he was tortured and brutally thrashed by the investigators. However, the allegation was completely denied by the investigating agency.

"My son is being tortured, he was hung upside down and brutally thrashed. He is completely innocent," the accused's father had said.

It would be remembered that the 16-year-old student of Ryan International School in Gurugram who murdered a seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur has admitted of killing the Class 11 student but he has changed his mind saying he was forced to confess to the crime he didn't commit.

The remand application was submitted before a court yesterday. The CBI was given three-day remand of the accused for further questioning.

The note said, "On the basis of minute inspection of crime, analysis of the CCTV footage and movements of the students near the scene of crime, and questioning of students, teachers and other staff of the school on 7.11.2017, the CBI has identified and apprehended juvenile in conflict with law at 2330 hours. He has admitted his involvement in committing the murder of Master Pradyuman Thakur on 08.09.2017 in ground floor boys washroom of Ryan International School, Gurugram in presence of his father, independent witnesses, welfare officer of the CBI."

The agency also wants the teenager to identify the shop from where he had purchased the knife used to slit the throat of Pradyuman.

The CBI said the interrogation was needed to reconstruct the scene of the crime, to unearth conspiracy, if any, and to collect any other evidence related to the case.
