Ryan case: Ashok Kumar released from jail

Ashok Kumar

With Ashok's release, there were reports which claimed that the bus conductor, in all likelihood, might file a defamation case against the police officers who tried to "frame" him. 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.

Ashok's wife, Mamta, however, told the media that the police forced the conductor to confess for the crime that he did not commit.

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. The CBI says the class 11 student, now in a juvenile home, wanted desperately to delay his exams, and so planned a murder that would force a school holiday.The investigators also suspected that the murder weapon - a knife - was planted on Ashok Kumar.Recuperating in his home in Ghamroj village near Delhi, Ashok Kumar described a harrowing time after he picked up the blood-soaked boy on the day of the murder and took him to a vehicle on the instruction of a teacher."They took me to the thana (police station) and kept beating me, hanged me upside down, strung me up with my hands and feet, until I passed out".

Ashok was accused in the Pradyuman murder case, was free from bars on bail from Gurugram's Bhondsi jail late Wednesday evening.

Speaking to the news agency, the wife also said, "Police beat him (Kumar) up, hung him upside down, tortured him and even sedated him to make him confess".

Did you 'like' Russian propaganda? Facebook will clue you in
Facebook has announced a new policy for the end of the year: When it comes to Russian Federation , digital ads serve you. You could soon see whether you interacted with Russian propaganda on Facebook and Instagram during the 2016 election.

But the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is now probing the matter, turned the tables and held a 16-year-old student of the school responsible for the murder.

"We knew from the beginning that he wasn't involved in the murder".

The incident sparked a public outcry after which Gurugram police arrested Ashok, alleging him of killing the second standard student. The Gurgaon Police did not carry out a proper investigation.

At the same time, the agency opposed Kumar's bail plea in court saying it could not give him a clean chit until its probe was complete.

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".
