A Class 12 student was stabbed by his own classmate in the classroom in Government Senior Secondary School Dhade Fateh Singh on Thursday.
The incident happened when during a class the accused Harpal Singh suddenly got up from his seat and stabbed Kuldip Singh with a knife. As the students and the teacher rushed towards Kuldip, the accused ran away. The injured was immediately taken to the Hoshiarpur civil hospital. But as his liver was damaged he was immediately referred to DMCH, Ludhiana.
School principal Manjit Kaur said she had no idea about the cause of Harpal's outburst. "I'm trying to find out from the students if Harpal and Kuldip had a fight', she said.
Bulhowal SHO Harneel Singh said that the police were looking for the accused, a resident of Hussainpur Guru Ka village.
"The boy has not reached his home", he said.
