The chief minister also said that the Haryana government will take over the management of the Ryan International School in Gurugram for the next three months.

The father of the murdered seven-year-old boy said that he was glad that the case had been handed over to the central agency. "There was a demand from the family members and several others for handing over the case to the CBI for investigation", he told reporters after meeting the family members of Pradhyumn Thakur in Gurugram.

This comes just a day after the Gurugram Police had detained the school's gardener, Harpal Singh, a key witness in the murder of Pradhyumn, and said it's "likely" to arrest more persons. Police have arrested the bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who allegedly killed the kid after failing to sexually assault him. The Chief Minister, who met the family members of seven-year-old Class 2 student Pradyuman, assured that culprits will be brought to book and justice will be done.
