He also also told that there has been havoc all over India because of the murder and he must take responsibility of it. "We have made a decision to file a case against Gurugram Police Special Investigation Team officers who framed and used torture and even drugged him to confess before the media that he had committed the crime", Ashok's father Amirchand had said. It seems more information about the case will be made available soon, as the authorities take charge of the situation.

Pradyuman, a Class 2 student, was found lying in a pool of blood in a toilet in the school on September 8 with his throat slit.

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

In the audio clip, Chopra is also heard talking to a relative of the juvenile arrested on November 7 for allegedly committing the crime: "Let me get my nephew released first, after that we will find a way for you and put the whole blame on the school authorities". Ashok was arrested on September 8.

The CBI on Monday submitted the DNA report in court.


"The bail was granted under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution, which states that everyone has the right to personal liberty and life", said Advocate Anil Sharma, who was present in the court on behalf of Ashok's lawyer Mohit Verma.

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. His lawyeer had said that he was given benefit of doubt since there were a lot of differences between the findings of the CBI and the Haryana Police.

Ashok got bail days after the Central Bureau of Investigation apprehended a Class XI student of the same school alleging he murdered Pradyuman.

According to the CBI investigation, the juvenile committed the murder in a bid to postpone the school's scheduled examinations and parent-teacher meetings.
