Lawyer of the suspect girl in Brightland school stabbing incident said on Sunday, her family wants the case to be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation as they have no faith in police investigation and they also questioned school management’s role in the entire case.

Lawyer Naushad Ali Khan and girl’s father questioned why the school did not report the matter to the police and concealed it for more than 24 hours. They also alleged about why did school teacher cut suspect girl’s hair while it was the job of the police to collect the sample.

Her father said, “School management is trying to shield somebody and in the process they and the police are trying to frame my daughter, who too is minor and innocent. We want the guilty should be punished but innocent should be spared.”

The suspect girl also answered queries of media persons. She recalled how she has been hounded by the school since Tuesday afternoon till such time she was sent to juvenile home. “I have done nothing wrong and still everybody is questioning me about the incident,” she said.

The family claimed the school has been saying that they have CCTV footage that shows the suspect girl going inside the toilet. But they have never shown the footage to the family.
