The incident is similar to the case reported from a school inGurugram, where a 16-year-old boy allegedly murdered his junior, a Class 2 student, by slitting his throat. The case made headlines as the state of security in schools was brought to the limelight. He was murdered by his senior so that he could delay an upcoming examination and a parent-teacher meeting due that week.
Initially, a driver of a school bus was arrested and confessed to the crime but on the insistence of the victim’s parents, a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry was ordered by the Supreme Court which finally led to the arrest of the murderer who turned out to be a student of the same school.
