Gurugram police commissioner Sandeep Khaiwar held a press conference on Thursday to refute allegations of a botched up investigation in the Pradyuman murder case.
Defending his men, Khaiwar said the Gurugram cops were not at fault. He, however, did not answer questions about the recovery of the murder weapon and the arrest of a bus conductor without the completion of the investigation but admitted that sexual assault was not established in the post portem.
“We had carried out an investigation at a very early stage and handed over the case to the CBI in the hope that the culprits would be brought to book and justice would be delivered to the victim’s family. There was no pressure on us. We made an honest attempt to deliver justice to the victim’s family,” he said.
Gurugram police are facing the heat now and being accused of colluding with school authorities. “We had not concluded the investigation and not done a specific role attribution. The process of gathering evidence was on,” the police officer said while justifying that there was no pressure on his men.
Khaiwar said there were evidences against Ashok Kumar, the bus conductor who was arrested. “We had collected physical evidences from the spot with the help of forensic experts. The forensic reports are yet to come,” he said.
