The CBI on September 22 took over the probe into the killing of Pradyuman after his father threatened to move the Supreme Court if the investigation does not start.

Barun Thakur, father of the 7-year-old victim, who had opposed grant of relief, argued that the case would fall under the category of rarest of rare.
