The school official added, “Around 11.50am, a group of primary students informed some teachers about the boy lying in a pool of blood. He had breathed his last before the ambulance could reach”.
While addressing to the Hindustan Times, Vadodara commissioner of police, Manoj Shashidhar said, “The police have apprehended four students and interrogation is on. While it is clear that one of them, who is a Class 10 student, committed the murder. But one of the other three might have assisted him. The facts will soon be out”.
