Varun Thakur, the father of the Class II student who was murdered in Gurgaon’s Ryan International School on September 8, claimed the Haryana government asked him to refrain from seeking a CBI probe, reported news agency ANI. Thakur on Wednesday said he was told by minister Rao Narbir Singh that a CBI inquiry would take time, and that the family should trust the state police’s investigation.

“Haryana minister Rao Narbir Singh came to us and asked not to insist on a CBI inquiry as it will take time, and trust a police probe. I said if CBI also comes to the same conclusion as the police then we will accept it, but we want a CBI probe first,” Thakur was quoted as saying by ANI.

In response to Thakur’s statement to the media, Singh on Wednesday defended himself saying he told the victim’s family to give the police a week’s time before recommending a CBI probe. “I had just said that no government can recommend a CBI inquiry on same day of incident. I told the victim’s family let police probe for a week or so if you are not satisfied, then will recommend CBI,” Singh said, reported ANI.

      The minister needs to be probed independently. A minister of the state told on the camera in media that the arrest of the 11th grade student needs to be probed. The minister should be asked to explain on what premises or circumstantial evidence he was speaking. Some time the picture is larger than what we see.

              I think both the boy and the driver are involved somehow.. And the parents were aware about something that may have happened before and were planning to complain in the parent teacher meeting... about the killer.. Y ia no onw questioning the parents more becz the victims and the killer went to the same piano class.. This is a planned murder and the parents know something and not revealing.... Ia the killer even 16? Maybe he's a failure his dob certificate etc shud be chkd so he can be tried as a adult
