According to reports from India Today, the bus conductor has confessed his crime after being grilled by the police and said that the child refused to have sex and started to cry, which prompted him to slit his throat before he fled. But, he left behind his knife, which the police had recovered.

Following the incident, Varun Thakur, the father of the child, who was murdered has questioned the safety of children while they are in school. He has also accused the school’s administration of negligence. He also stated that had the child been taken care of, he might have survived.
