A teenager was killed after two groups of students fired at each other in a college at Sahibabad on Saturday, a police officer said.
The incident took place around 12.30 pm at the Lala Lajpat Rai Post Graduate College.

"Abhishek later succumbed to his injuries at the Fortis hospital," he added.
Three men Kuldeep, Johney and Virendra have been arrested while the other two students of Lala Lajpat Rai College are at large. A case has been registered against them.
