Ryan murder case: Talwars' lawyer to defend juvenile
New Delhi : The lawyer who successfully defended dentist-couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the murder trial of their daughter, Aarushi, has been roped in to fight the case of teen arrested on charges of Pradyuman Thakur's murder in Ryan International School in Gurugram.
Lawyer Tanveer Ahmed Mir on Friday confirmed that he has taken up the case and will be defending Class 11 student of the school.
“Preliminary discussions have taken place with the father of the juvenile accused. Once the terms and conditions are formally finalised, I will be defending the boy,” he said.
CBI had arrested the Class 11 students on charges of planning and killing Pradyuman with a motive to postpone the school examinations.
The father, on the other hand, claimed that his son was taken as a witness to the case but later the CBI branded him as the culprit in the matter.
“My son has been framed by CBI officers … I will try to save my son as he is innocent and will fight to get justice. I will take help of best lawyers in this case,” he said.
His son had narrated the sequence of events in the murder case to CBI on November 13.
