Ashok, whose health remains poor, wasn't able to speak much, but Mamta claimed that the local cops even gave him electric shocks in order to get him to confess.

Speaking to the news agency, the wife also said, "Police beat him (Kumar) up, hung him upside down, tortured him and even sedated him to make him confess".

Ashok was accused in the Pradyuman murder case, was free from bars on bail from Gurugram's Bhondsi jail late Wednesday evening.

On the morning of September 8, Pradyuman was found dead in a toilet of the school with his throat slit, within an hour of his father leaving him at the school. Kumar was arrested by the Haryana Police for murdering Class II student, Pradyuman Thakur, of Ryan International school in Bhondsi area of Gurugram.

The bail was granted as the CBI could not submit any evidence against the bus conductor. "DNA has not matched with the blood sample of the killer's blood which was found on Pradyuman's clothes", said Verma.

"Villagers are with us and they all want us to demand justice for Ashok and action against the irresponsible police officials", he said.
