The father of the class 11 student arrested in connection with the murder of Pradyuman on Saturday accused the CBI of torturing his son. However, the CBI denied the allegations.

''My son is being tortured, he was hung upside down and brutally thrashed. He is completely innocent,'' the accused student's father told media persons.



The father of the Class 11 student, who has been sent to Faridabad observation home until the next hearing on 22nd November, said that his son was completely innocent and got nothing to do with the murder.


"Only one parent-teacher meeting had happened till now, all teachers had praised my son's performance and behaviour. I have his marksheets" said the accused student's father. 


He then posed a question directed towards the CBI officials and asked if it was possible for a boy to be normal all this while had he committed such a heinous crime as per CBI's version. 


The CBI, however, denied all the allegations. 

Meanwhile, the Juvenile Justice Board is looking for clarity from CBI as to why it breached the timings of interrogation of the accused student. 

The class 11th student was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) after being accused with the murder of Pradyuman, has been sent to Faridabad observation home until 22nd November for the next hearing.
