Pupil slits seven-year-old schoolmate’s throat to postpone exams


Police in India has arrested a teenager who allegedly slit the throat of a seven-year-old schoolmate in hopes the murder would lead to an exam to be postponed, federal investigators said.

The 16-year-old is accused to have committed the murder sometime in September at a smart private school near Delhi in an attempt to delay an impending test and parent-teacher meeting.


A bus conductor ahd earlier been arrested over the murder, following claims he killed the boy after the young pupil resisted a sex attack.

But a spokesman for federal investigators said they had credible evidence against the “academically weak teenager, whose motive was to postpone the examination and a forthcoming parent-teacher meeting”.
“He admitted during questioning that he wanted to shut the school to defer the exams and meeting,” Central Bureau of Investigation spokesman R.K. Gaur told AFP.

The teenager for now would be sent to a juvenile detention centre until his trial for murder, he added.
