The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probing the murder of  Class 2 student Pradyuman Thakur has informed the court that the juvenile, who has been apprehended, has confessed to his involvement in committing the murder.

The CBI produced the Class XI student of the same school, who has confessed to the crime, before the Gurgaon juvenile court, which sent the boy to a correction home for three days though CBI sought six days custody.

The CBI sought six days arguing they have to recover certain items related to the case, as well as recreate the crime scene. However, judicial magistrate (first class) Devender Singh granted three days, with the rider CBI can interview the student only between 10am and 6pm while he spends the nights at a correction home in Faridabad.

The accused will be produced before the court again on Saturday, media reports said.

Thakur was found murdered on the ground floor washroom of Bhondsi campus of Ryan International School with his throat slit on September 8.
