Chandigarh, Dec 20 (IBNS): The Juvenile Justice Board on Wednesday declared the Class XI student, who has been  accused of killing Pradyuman Thakur in Ryan International School, will be tried as an adult, media reports said.

Pradyuman was found in a pool of blood inside the washroom of the school with his throat slit open in early September.

A civic court also granted bail to bus conductor Ashoke, who was arrested earlier for allegedly murdering the class 2 student, on Nov. 21.

Ashoke earlier confessed that he was the one who killed Pradyuman.

Apart from Ashoke, the police has suspected a class 11 student of the same school to have committed the crime.

Though Ashoke had confessed his act of murdering the seven-year old boy,  the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) apprehended a class XI student of the same school in connection with the murder. The senior student eventually was arrested.

Being a juvenile, his name was not disclosed.

After a CBI probe it appeared Ashoke was possibly framed for a crime he did not commit.

The CBI has revealed that Gurgaon police had planted the murder weapon, a knife, that was used to kill seven-year old Pradyuman Thakur in Ryan International School, on bus conductor Ashok Kumar.

According to the CBI, the weapon belonged to the class XI student.

The teenager allegedly wanted to impede the approaching exams and parent teacher meeting and hence killed the boy.
