He was hung upside down and brutally thrashed.

The teenager who was apprehended by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the murder of Ryan International School student Pradyuman has been sent to Faridabad observation home. "We have chose to file a case against Gurgaon Police SIT officers who framed and used torture and even drugged him to confess before the media that he had committed the crime", said Ashok's father Amirchand. He will be at the observation home till November 22, which is also the date of next hearing, Sandeep Aneja, lawyer of the accused minor said.

CBI after examining the CCTV footages and interrogating several teachers, students and other school staff had arrested the 16-year-old class 11 student as the main accused in the case. "You think a 16-year-old can murder someone and sit normally at home and behave normally for two months without anyone knowing about what he has done", said the father of the child.He stated that they have been cooperating with the officials during the investigation.

The CBI, however, denied all allegations of torturing the accused.

The sources said the team reached the school at around noon along with the accused and remained there for over three hours before taking him to the juvenile court where a hearing was scheduled.

The suspect who was taken into custody on Tuesday night was taken by the CBI to the shop in Sohna from where he had purchased knife allegedly used in the murder of Pradyuman, the sources said.

BJP leaders in Haryana are a divided lot after the CBI declared that the murderer of a Class 2 student here was a senior schoolmate and not a bus conductor as alleged by Haryana Police.

The CBI then produced the accused juvenile, a class 11 student of the Ryan International School, Gurugram, before the Juvenile Justice Board and demanded his six-day custody.

They said the officer, a completely independent entity, remains present during the questioning sessions and also whenever the accused is taken to a location. CBI on Friday also told that there is a possibility of involvement of other person in the case.
