Pradhyumn murder: Ryan school bus driver says last 2 months were hellRohit E David | TNN | Updated: Nov 11, 2017, 09:28 ISTSaurav Raghav GURUGRAM: Saurav Raghav (32), driver of the bus of which Ashok Kumar was conductor, says that the last two months have been hell.
"What have I done? For the last two months, either Haryana Police or CBI has been questioning me. The media is after me. When I went to school after the incident, I was not allowed to drive the bus. Till the probe is over, I can't leave this place. Every day, I go to the school at 6.30am, knowing that I will only have to kill time. On rare ocassions, when the driver of some other bus is absent, I substitute for him," says Raghav.
After Pradhyumn's death, a lot has changed in the school. "We (bus drivers and conductors) are not allowed to go into the school building. A washroom has been built for us, outside the school. Police verification has been done for all of us," says Raghav.
Raghav claims police tortured him during interrogation on September 8. But the CBI officials only questioned him, he says.
"On September 27, I was told to visit the CBI headquarters. I went with Vijender who was one of the drivers with whom I had cleaned the toolbox in the bus. The first question the officials asked was how long I had known Ashok. I said nearly four months. They asked, 'Do you suspect that the conductor committed this crime?' I said 'no' because he never even raised his voice in front of the kids. They also questioned me about the knife. I told them on September 6, I had cleaned the toolbox and there was no knife inside it," says Raghav.
Gurgaon police had claimed that Kum ar had taken the knife from the toolkit in the bus and was cleaning it in the school washroom when he chanced upon Pradhyumn and killed him with it. Raghav says if someone kept a knife in the toolbox, it would have been captured by one of the two cameras in the bus.
