Bus conductor Ashok Kumar was arrested by Gurugram police in connection with Pradyuman's murder.

The initial eight seconds of the footage shows the now accused teenager calling Pradyuman to the washroom. "There were many clues which a cop won't normally miss", a CBI officer said on Monday.

The CBI refused to formally offer any comment for the story.

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 CBI has stated that Ashok did not commit the murder and they are giving him a clean chit".

Though the CBI has not said anything as yet, it is expected that some local politicians may soon be called for questioning in the the case.

"We have been asserting for long that he is innocent". The juvenile suspect has reportedly said that he was beaten up and forced to confess - an allegation that a former suspect, a school bus conductor at the school, had leveled against the Gurgaon police. Days later, the police arrested a school bus conductor for the murder; he allegedly confessed to killing Pradhyumn. "We're not alleging anything as yet, but we're definitely curious about how investigating officials missed or misinterpreted these", the officer added.

The accused student has been sent to Faridabad observation home where he will be kept until the next hearing in the case on November 22.

The accused, in the presence of his father, independent witnesses, and the welfare officer of the CBI, has admitted his involvement in Pradyuman's murder, the agency said.

Meanwhile, the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) on Saturday sought a clarification from the CBI based on an application filed by the accused's father as to why it violated the timings of interrogation of the juvenile delinquent.

Pradhuman Thakur, the seven-year-old boy, was found near the toilet of Ryan International School with his throat slit on September 8 morning within an hour of his father leaving him at the school.
