In a shocking reminder of the gun-culture associated with Haryana, a Student of the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Haryana’s Sonepat district was shot at in the classroom by another student on Friday. The crime was recorded on the close-circuit television camera installed in the classroom, the leaked video of which has now gone viral on social media platforms.
The victim and the perpetrators are said to be around 17-18 years of age. The exact cause of the incident is still being examined and an old rivalry between the students involved has not been ruled out.
Police said a country made pistol was used in the shooting and the victim was immediately rushed to a hospital in Sonepat from where he was later transferred to the Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Rohtak. The victim is currently under treatment while the police have launched a manhunt to nab the two boys seen fleeing from the scene of crime after the shooting.
News agency PTI quoted Rahul Dev, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Sonepat as saying: “CCTV footage purportedly shows two boys approaching the victim from behind while he was chatting with other students in the classroom. One of the two boys then took out a pistol from his bag and shot the victim in the back. As the victim fell from the bench he was sitting on, both the accused fled from the spot.”
