Ryan Murder Case: Conductor's Wife Alleges he was Tortured By Police

Hours later, the city police detained the school bus conductor claiming it had cracked the case. He seems to have partially lost use of his legs.Ashok Kumar was released on bail yesterday from a prison where he spent 72 days.

His wife, Mamta, told media that they knew that Ashok was being framed from the start.

The 42-year-old, who hailed from Ghamroj village in Sohna area of south Gurugram, was jailed on 8 September, the very day seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur was found murdered in the school toilet.

Ashok narrated the whole story how the police threatened him to make him confess to a murder he claimed he had nothing to do with.

The CBI also rejected the Gurgaon Police theory that Ashok killed Pradyuman after attempting to sexually abuse the boy, but stopped short of giving the Ryan school bus conductor a clean chit.

Kumar reached home late on Tuesday after being released from Haryana's Bhondsi Jail on Wednesday. The Gurgaon Police did not carry out a proper investigation.

She also said, Ashok said her that a madam ordered him to carry on the body (Pradyuman's body) in the vehicle and that he just helped.

On Monday, Ashok's lawyer, Mohit Verma, had said that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had not presented any evidence against his client.

Gurgaon Police arrested Ashok on the day of the murder and accused him of committing the crime.

The CBI was asked to submit the status report in the court after arguments by all parties on 20 November, and the judge had reserved the decision for Tuesday.

In the clip, a male voice can be heard seeking help from Chopra, who assures him of doing so after Kumar gets bail.

The case was later transferred to the CBI, which eventually found that a senior student of the school committed the crime in a bid to "postpone the examination and parent-teachers meet".
