He was produced before the JJB after his custody ended on Wednesday. He was last produced before the board on November 11. He has since been put up at an observational home in Faridabad.Meanwhile, the juvenile’s father alleged that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) interrogated his son beyond the prescribed time.The board had fixed his interrogation for 10 am to 6 pm during a three-day remand that the agency got on November 8. Hearing on his plea is now scheduled for December 29, said a lawyer who attended the proceedings.The agency also sought permission to get his fingerprints but the matter has been posted for a later hearing. “There has been no decision on whether the juvenile should be tried as an adult,” Sushil Tekriwal, counsel of the victim’s father, Barun Chandra Thakur, said.On November 14, Thakur had filed a petition before the JJB, seeking that the 16-year-old accused be tried as an adult, stating that the crime he committed was “chilling, horrific, monstrous, and serious in nature”.”The juvenile should be treated as an adult as he knew what he was doing, his intention was to kill. He bought a knife a day before and also researched poisons on the internet. The statements recorded by the CBI officers indicate that he planned this murder to delay the exams and the parents-teachers meeting. The murder had a motive,” said Tekriwal.SCHOOL BUS CONDUCTOR RETURNS HOMEAshok Kumar, the school bus conductor arrested in connection with the Ryan murder case, was released on bail from the Bhondsi Jail on Wednesday evening. As the media persons thronged outside the Jail premises, the authorities as well as Kumar’s lawyers were quick to get him out from the back gate. His family members and other villagers were waiting for him at his home. Kumar’s lawyers claimed that he was not in a condition to speak to the media.
