Student shot dead school principal in Yamunanagar

The commerce student took the extreme step as he was upset over the repeated scolding in the school.

A class 12 student in Haryana on Saturday shot dead the school principal because he was reprimanded by her on several occasions leading to his expulsion.

The student was rusticated from school about a fortnight ago for poor attendance and for picking up fights, an official said. Principal Chhabra was reportedly shot at thrice from close range with a.32 bore gun by the students during a meeting with his parents on the premises of Swami Vivekanand Public School between 11:30 AM and Noon.

"He had a grudge against the school principal for reprimanding him a few times in front of his classmates on the complaint of teachers", superintendent of police Kalia said.

SP Rajesh Kalia said that the accused has been arrested. The principal, Ritu Chabra suffered 3 bullet injuries and was rushed to the nearest hospital, where she succumbed to injuries. "But rather than going to tutions, he went to the school", the officer said.

The 18-year-old was overpowered and handed over to police, who have booked the boy for murder and detained him.

As he was a school student, he was allowed to meet the school principal, SP Kalia said.

The boy had stolen his father's licensed revolver by breaking a wooden almirah at his home, police said.

The police have also booked the accused student's father and he's likely to be charged under the arms act. "He will be presented before the court the tomorrow".

More than five rounds were fired, triggering panic and horror among the school staff, teachers and students.
