New Delhi: A Class 11 student who allegedly wanted the parent-teacher meeting and exams to be postponed has been apprehended in connection with the killing of a seven-year-old boy in Gurgaon’s Ryan International School, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said on Wednesday.

In a sensational twist to the case, the high school student, who is about 16 years old, was apprehended late last night for allegedly killing his junior inside the school, said a CBI spokesperson.

Pradyuman, a Class 2 student of the school, was found dead with his throat slit by a sharp-edged weapon on the morning of 8 September.

Officials in the agency said the crime was committed in just three to four minutes. The CBI has not found any evidence so far against bus conductor Ashok Kumar, who was the Gurgaon Police’s sole accused in the gruesome killing, CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said.

The murder weapon, a knife, was found in the commode of the toilet where the killing allegedly took place, he said. It was the same knife seized by the Gurgaon Police.

According to the agency, the Class 11 student, believed to be weak in his studies, allegedly slit Pradyuman’s throat to get the school to declare a holiday in order to defer a scheduled parent-teacher meeting (PTM) and an examination.

The CBI spokesperson said the minor student was apprehended last night at 11.30 pm in accordance with the provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act. “His parents were kept in the loop and all measures in accordance with the JJ Act were complied with. He remains our prime suspect.”

He said the agency analysed CCTV footage, showing the movement of people in and out of the toilet, on the basis of which it narrowed the list of suspects. The agency has not found any evidence of sexual assault, he said.

The CBI was able to piece together elements of the crime by analysing CCTV footage, scientific and forensic examination, analysis of the crime scene and by questioning students, teachers and staff of the school.

Based on CCTV footage and crime scene analysis, the agency examined all potential suspects and witnesses. The list included 125 teachers and students, officials said.

Ryan Pinto, owner of the Ryan International School chain, is yet to be questioned in the case. “The probe is still on. The first task was to identify the killer. It was a tough case. By the time the case was given to us, many persons were allowed to use the bathroom. We are questioning the teenager only between 10am to 5pm as per JJ Act provisions,” said an official.

The mobile records of all the suspects were scrutinised and examined by the CBI’s special crime team. Although the Class 11 student had planned a killing on 8 September, the “child in conflict with law” had not identified his target, Dayal said. It was a coincidence that Pradyuman reached the toilet and became a victim of senior student’s ghastly plan, officials added.

The father of the high school student told a television channel that his son was innocent and they had been cooperating with the police from day one. “My son didn’t do anything. He informed the gardener and teachers after finding Pradyuman’s body. He stayed in the school the entire day, and appeared for the exam. There was not even a single spot of blood on my son’s clothes,” the father said, his face pixellated to avoid identification.

Giving details, he said Tuesday was the fourth time they were called. “I reached there around 11am… I left from there at 2am and CCTV footage can be seen for that,” he said.

The CBI’s findings will be a major embarrassment for the Gurgaon Police, which had blamed Ashok Kumar and alleged that he was waiting in the toilet with a knife. The police had formed 14 SIT teams.

Kumar, a resident of Ghamdoj village in Sohna, was hired by a school bus contractor around seven months before the killing. Villagers in Ghamdoj had said Kumar had been framed and he had no previous history of being involved in any crime. “Now that they have arrested this student, it is proof that the doubt we had about the police investigation was right,” Pradyuman’s father Varun Thakur told the media.


This iOS 11 tip will help you organize your apps in seconds

  • iOS 11 has a bit of a secret that makes it much easier to organize applications.
  • It’s especially useful if you’re creating folders or moving multiple applications at once
  • We’ll walk you through how to manage apps in iOS 11 in this guide

iOS 11 is loaded with new features, but some of them are harder to find than others.

If you follow this guide, you’ll be able to organize your iOS apps more easily than ever before. It’s useful if you’ve ever felt the pain of trying to move apps one by one from folder to folder or screen to screen.

Here’s how to better manage your apps.

First, long press on an app that you’d like to move.

Select an app you'd like to move by long-holding the icon

You can do this by holding your finger on an application icon for just a few seconds. It’ll start jiggling and you’ll see an X pop up when it’s ready to be moved. Don’t let go, this is key. We’re going to group a bunch of apps together.

Begin selecting additional apps.

Begin selecting multiple apps by tapping them

Now, while still holding one finger on that first app, tap all the other apps you want to group with it. They’ll all start to gather under the first app you selected. Note the small number that appears which shows how many apps you’ve selected.

Move them where you’d like to place them.

Move the apps anywhere you like, such as into a folder.

This simple grouping of applications allows you to take all of your health apps, for example, and quickly toss them into a folder. Previously, you’d need to select each app one by one.

That’s it!

Great job!

That’s all there is to it. It used to take a half hour or longer for me to organize everything and now it takes just seconds.


How to Downgrade iOS 11 Beta to iOS 10

How to Downgrade iOS 11 Beta to iOS 10


  • You can go back to iOS 10.3 from iOS 11 beta
  • The process is not as easy as installing iOS 11 beta
  • You need to connect your iOS device to a PC or Mac

If you are reading this, it means you probably downloaded and installed iOS 11 beta on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and are regretting the decision. Switching back to an older version of iOS is not as simple as installing iOS 11 beta. We’ve always advised you to take a complete backup of your iOS devicebefore attempting adventurous things like switching to beta versions of iOS. If you did that, you don’t have much to worry about at all.

If you did not take a full back up, you may lose some data while downgrading to iOS 10. There’s a simple reason for this — you can’t restore your iOS 11 backup if your device is on iOS 10. So hopefully, you either backed up your device, or didn’t have any important data on the device you installed iOS 11 on. If you’re ready to revert to iOS 10 from iOS 11 beta, read on.

How to revert to iOS 10 from iOS 11 beta
These steps will help you downgrade to iOS 10 from iOS 11 beta.

  1. Be sure to check you have the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Now you need to download the iOS 10.3.3 beta restore image. This varies based on how you downloaded iOS 11 beta as there are separate links for developer beta, public beta, or Apple customer seeding. Most people – like those who followed our instructions – will have the public beta, so if you are not sure, stick to that version.
  3. You need to enter your Apple ID and password, log in, and download the image file.
  4. Connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac running iTunes.
  5. Now you need to put the iOS device in recovery mode: If you have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, press and hold the volume down and power button on your phone until you see the recovery mode (iTunes logo with lightning cable) show up on the phone. For older iPhones, iPad, or iPod touch, press and hold the power and home button until you enter recovery mode (iTunes logo with lightning cable) show up on the phone.
  6. Once the device is in recovery mode, iTunes on your PC or Mac will show a pop-up asking whether you want to restore to an older version. On Mac, while keeping the Option key on your keyboard pressed click Restore. On Windows, while keeping the Shift key on your keyboard pressed click Restore.
  7. Select the iOS beta restore image you downloaded in step 2.
  8. To remove the iOS 11 beta and return to iOS 10, click Restore.
  9. Now the wait begins. It takes a lot of time for the process to complete. Once the restore is done, you’ll have to enter your Apple ID and password on the iOS device.
  10. After that you can choose to set it up as a new device or restore from a backup to return to the state it was in before you upgraded it to iOS 11 beta.
