Seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur, who was murdered in Gurgaon's Ryan International School last week, was not sexually assaulted and died of excessive bleeding, the doctor who conducted the post-mortem said on Tuesday. Pradyuman was slashed on the neck twice with a knife and one of the wounds severed a nerve that made him incapable of crying for help, the postmortem report said. The alleged assailant, school's bus conductor Ashok, is now in judicial custody. Hundreds of parents held protests outside the Navi Mumbai branch of the school for the fifth day on Tuesday, demanding better security for students. Union ministers Maneka Gandhi and Prakash Javadekar will look into the matter at a high-level meeting today.
