The CBI's arrest of the juvenile had derailed the Haryana Police version of the gory crime which led to the arrest of a school bus conductor, Ashok Kumar.

The initial eight seconds of the footage shows the now accused teenager calling Pradyuman to the washroom.

The team, which arrested bus conductor Ashok Kumar and declared him a pedophile, admitted that they made mistakes.

Asked why it then took over a month for the agency to apprehend the juvenile, a CBI spokesperson refused to comment, saying the matter is between the court and the agency.

"There were many clues which a cop won't normally miss".

The CBI officials had also taken him to the knife shop from where he had allegedly purchased the murder weapon.

As per norms, the case should have been officially recorded by the SHO of the concerned Police Station, but a junior officially recorded the case and interestingly he was made the arresting officer of the conductor.

Earlier, the CBI produced the accused, who is a minor, before the JJB and demanded his six-day custody.

Reacting to the botched-up investigation of the Pradyuman murder case and unofficial theories and rumours doing the rounds, BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha had on Monday called for in-camera interrogation of all accused in the case.

"We knew that he was innocent and pleaded for help but nobody heard us".

The investigation was held by the Gurugram Police was allegedly proven wrong, an English news channel reported. "We're not alleging anything as yet, but we're definitely curious about how investigating officials missed or misinterpreted these", the officer added.

The juvenile, while talking to a team of CBI officials and officers from the Juvenile Justice Board, said on Monday that he was forced by the investigating officers to make the confession.

The Juvenile Justice Board had directed CBI to allow child welfare committee (CWC) to probe the social activities of the murder suspect and profile his behaviour, likings and followings on the social front. The CBI began probing the case from September 22 and arrested the Ryan student on November 8, It also gave a clean chit to the conductor. It said that the 16-year-old accused told the agency that he had known Pradyuman from the piano class they attended together in the school.
