A student from Bihar was stabbed with a knife on his way to school

In Gopalganj district of Bihar, a class 10 student was fatally stabbed by a youth on his way to school on Wednesday. According to police, the incident is believed to have been triggered by an alleged ‘love triangle’. 

The body of the 16-year-old boy was held for more than five hours on National Highway (NH) 27 by angry citizens who were upset about the incident. They demanded the immediate arrest of the accuser. 

According to police, the victim had been living with his maternal uncle since his father was killed two years earlier. Witnesses reported that two people intercepted the boy from behind, attacked him with a machete and then fled. 

The boy was taken to Baruali’s primary health care (PHC) facility, where paramedics pronounced him “dead,” according to Gopalganj police chief (SP) Swarn Prabhat. According to a PHC doctor, the patient’s massive blood loss was the cause of death. On condition of anonymity, the doctor stated, “The machete was found in the victim’s neck when he arrived here. 

Police then launched an investigation, claiming to have received some information from certain schoolgirls. According to SP, one of the suspects was detained and interrogated by police. “According to him, a love triangle was the cause of the incident. The victim and the suspect had an argument about it a few days ago. It is suspected that the primary suspect was having an affair with a local woman who he overheard speaking to the victim, he said. 

The crime scene was examined by a dog squad and a team from the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL). A case has been filed under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 302 (murder) and 34 (common intention). Police have also started investigating the other offenders.
