"Police brutally beat him up, hung him upside down, grief-stricken him and even sedated him to make him confess", Ashok's wife told ANI.

Ashok Kumar, the bus conductor who was initially accused of murdering Class 2 student Pradyuman Thakur of Ryan International School in Gurugram, was released from the Bhondsi jail on Wednesday.

Ashok was granted bail against a bond of Rs 50,000.

Kumar's uncle Omprakash Chopra was summoned by CBI on Tuesday, after an audio clip, purportedly of him talking to a family member of the juvenile suspect, was circulated on messenger platforms.

On the morning of September 8, Pradyuman was found dead in a toilet of the school with his throat slit, within an hour of his father leaving him at the school. "DNA has not matched with the blood sample of the killer's blood which was found on Pradyuman's clothes", said Verma.

The incident sparked a public outcry after which Gurugram police arrested Ashok, alleging him of killing the second standard student.

Ashok Kumar has also said that he was drugged so that the policemen could get a confession from him without his consent.

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

He is not out of the woods yet; the CBI hasn't given him a clean chit. Again, the police men handling the case are being targeted as being culpable in the gross misinterpretation of evidence, torture and forcing an innocent person for accepting a crime he didn't commit. 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.

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday moved an application before the Juvenile Justice Board seeking fingerprints of the juvenile delinquent in the Ryan International School murder case.

The probe agency accepted that it had no incriminating evidence against Kumar.
