<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>After three days of an “intense probe” in to the murder of a seven-year-old Ryan International School student, several key questions remain unanswered. For instance, how could the accused, a school bus conductor, take the minor to a toilet, try to sexually assault him, slit his throat, and then clean the weapon, all within a span of 15 minutes. Also, why did the accused target the victim, who did not even take the school bus.According to the child’s father, on that fateful day, he saw him off at the school gate at 7.55 am. At 8.10 am, he received a call from the school authorities, informing him about the tragic incident. It seems unlikely that within just 15 minutes, the event took place and came to the notice of the authorities as well. Also, it has now come to the fore that initially, the crime scene was not sealed and the school authorities were allowed to walk in. A video of the crime spot, which went viral on the social media, showed the washroom’s floor drenched in blood. The school authorities might have tampered with the forensic evidence, sources said.Further, the police initially stated that the accused helped rush the boy to a school van, to be taken to hospital, but his clothes did not have single blood stain. This could have not been possible without someone else’s involvement.The accused was arrested the same night but the police refused to divulge the circumstantial evidence found against him or even from where was he arrested.Meanwhile, the victim’s parents told DNA that he never travelled in the school bus and did not know the conductor. Then what made him target the child? Many are now raising the suspicion that the boy witnessed something that he wasn’t supposed to, and was targetted because of that. It is also still not clear whether the CCTV cameras installed in the school were functional.
