New Delhi: Four Class 10 students have been stabbed outside a school in East Delhi, where they had gone to attend their exams. 

According to police, the four were stepping out of the Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya school in Mayur Vihar’s Phase II Saturday, when they were attacked by students from another school. 

Those injured have been identified as Gautam, Rehan, Faizan and Ayush, all of them from the Government Boys Senior Secondary School in Trilokpuri. Three of them have been discharged after being treated for injuries sustained in the knife attack while one is still under treatment at AIIMS Trauma Centre, Delhi, but is out of danger and will be discharged soon. 

Five accused, all minors, have been sent to a juvenile correction home, Pandav Nagar SHO Sanjay Kumar told ThePrint.

How the scuffle unfolded

DCP (East) Priyanka Kashyap told ThePrint that the Pandav Nagar police station received three PCR calls regarding a quarrel among boys at a school Saturday. “We thought it was a small fight, but on reaching the spot, it was found that four minor kids were attacked with sharp weapons,” she said.

Blood splatter was also found by the Delhi Police at a park where the victims had rushed in an attempt to flee the perpetrators. 

A victim’s parent from Trilokpuri told ThePrint on condition of anonymity that the cuts weren’t deep enough. 

“Our kids had a fight with some students, from a nearby government school and that brawl turned into a violent gang war. I feel schools need reforms; school kids indulging in violence is a matter of concern,” the parent said. 

A case under IPC sections of 324 (causing hurt by means of any instrument for shooting, stabbing or cutting, or any instrument which, used as weapon of offence), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hue), 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention), has been filed.
