HYDERABAD: A 14-year-old school student killed his classmate in front of the school at Kismatpur in Rajendranagar police limits during annual day celebration on Thursday.
According to S Jayaram, Rajendranagar inspector of police, Saikiran and Jagadish, students of Class VIII, quarrelled between themselves during the annual day celebrations of Little Scholars Public School around 5.15 pm.
Some students, who saw their clash, informed the class teacher of the incident.
With the school’s annual day function about to begin in a short time, the management called the two students and warned them to behave and asked them to attend the function along with their parents.
After being chided by the teacher, the two students came out of the school and clashed again in front of the main gate.
With Jagadish pounding Saikiran hard on his face, Saikiran collapsed on the ground in an unconscious state.
The management shifted Saikiran to a nearby corporate hospital where doctors declared him ‘brought dead’.
As per a complaint lodged by school correspondent Naresh, Rajendranagar police booked Jagadish under Section 302 (murder) of IPC.
