Tulsi has requested the apex court to transfer the case from Haryana's Sohna to Delhi's Saket Court.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and A.M. Khanwilkar considered Tulsi's submission that "the fundamental right of a person to be represented by a lawyer of his choice was getting infringed."

The school's bus conductor was nabbed on Friday after the body of the seven-year-old student was found inside the toilet of the high-profile school, with his throat slit, following which the school's principal was suspended.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted to look into the murder case of the seven-year-old Gurugram student, pointed out serious security lapses in the school.
