Gurgaon: The CBI today filed a charge sheet in a Gurgaon Court against a 16-year-old student in the case of the murder of a seven-year-old boy at a private school at Bhondsi.

The charge sheet was filed before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Jasbir Singh Kundu, which is treating the juvenile accused as an adult for allegedly committing the murder of the child.

The victim’s body was found with the throat slit in the washroom of the school on 8 September last year.

Earlier, the court had barred the media from using the name of the 16-year-old juvenile accused in the case and asked it to use fictitious names instead.

While the seven-year-old victim was named “Prince” by the court, the juvenile accused was named “Bholu” and the school was referred to as “Vidyalaya”.

On 8 January, the court had rejected the bail plea of the juvenile accused, imposed a cost of Rs 21,000 for “wasting the court’s time” in baseless litigation and directed his father to deposit the amount.

The Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) had on 20 December last year held that the teenager would be tried as an adult and directed that he be produced before Gurgaon Sessions Court.
