In a fresh twist in the sensational Ryan International murder case, the accused class XI student has allegedly told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) that he did not kill his junior Pradyuman Thakur and he was forced to confess the crime, reports said.

Days later, the police arrested a school bus conductor for the murder; he allegedly confessed to killing Pradhyumn.
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.
